Nevada County fire: 2 blazes extinguished in Glenbrook Basin
October 12, 2017
Firefighters early Thursday extinguished a quarter-acre fire in a Glenbrook Basin transient camp before responding to a second, nearby fire, neither of which caused any injuries, authorities said.
The Grass Valley Fire Department responded around midnight to a fire between Sutton Way and Brunswick Road, staying for two hours, Battalion Chief Steve Smith said.
"There was nobody there when we got there," Smith added.
Firefighters learned about a second, 10-by-10-foot fire off Plaza Drive while at the first blaze, the battalion chief said.
"The second fire was more roadside," Smith said, noting it was about 200 yards from the first blaze.
It's unknown if the two fires are connected. The causes of both remain under investigation, he added.
