Hunter Falls Fire 100% Contained; Remains Under Investigation

Posted: Updated:
Authorities say the 760-acre Hunter Falls Fire above Caughlin Ranch is now fully contained.

No structures are threatened, and no major injuries have been reported, although one firefighter suffered a minor eye injury. Four crews are currently rehabbing the burn area.

The fire remains under investigation, although authorities tell us it is human-caused and started last Saturday.

The Forest closure order for the area around the fire and Hunter Lake Road, including its tributaries, and Hunter Creek Trail is still in place as is the closure of Bartley Ranch Regional Park.

The cost to date to fight the fire is more than $710,000.
