NEVADA CITY, Calif. July 15, 2009 - A small vegetation fire on McCourtney Road in Grass Valley was contained by firefighters on Wednesday afternoon. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. One residence, several outbuildings and cars were destroyed. No injuries were reported.

At the same time, the Plumas National Forest reported a wildland fire called the Howland, burning approximately 3 miles from Little Grass Valley Reservoir. The 120 acre fire is burning in very steep, heavily timbered terrain.

East of U.S. Highway 395, 1/2 miles NE of Hallelujah Junction, two fires are rapidly spreading. The Trailer 1 and the Red Rock fires have already consumed over 1,500 acres.

Complete updates on all active wildland fires are posted in our Fire News section.
