Two Firefighters Hurt Battling California Wildfire


Fire crews still attempting to surround a 35-acre fire that started burning Saturday afternoon in Frazier Park.

Video of the Station Fire was provided by Jerry Ferris, who runs the Pine Mountain Club Weather station.

Fire crews said two U.S. Forest Service firefighters sustained minor injuries battling the fire. Crews said one suffered a fall, and one was airlifted Sunday after becoming dehydrated.

The fire stands at about 35 acres with 25 percent containment. Crews are expecting to get control of the fire by Tuesday.

No homes are threatened.

Crews said Santa Ana winds with gusts up to 25 mph and low humidity, along with rough steep terrain, is making it hard to battle the flames.

Crews said the fire was caused by people shooting guns in the area.
