25-acre wildfire breaks out near Colfax

Local fire crews were helping to douse a 25-acre blaze in the Cape Horn area near Colfax Monday evening, an emergency dispatcher said. “They’re trying to get a line around it. We have aircraft on it and lots and lots of resources,” a dispatcher at the Interagency Command Center in Grass Valley said. Smoke from the fire could be seen in the Glenbrook Basin area of Grass Valley early Monday evening. Crews from Ophir Hill, Peardale-Chicago Park, Higgins and Nevada County Consolidated fire departments, and crews from the Calfire state forestry and firefighting department, were among the responders.

Winners of some of the exhibitions at the Nevada County Fair are listed on Page C3 of today’s edition of The Union, and will be continued in coming days. For a full online listing, go to
