Cloverdale firefighters douse car fire

Cloverdale Rural Fire Protection District and Redmond Fire & Rescue were alerted Sunday morning to a vehicle fire at approximately milepost 101 of Highway 126 on the east grade of Dry Canyon.

The fire was located in an area between the borders of the two fire districts. Cloverdale crews arrived to find that a resident in the area had started putting water on the vehicle from a trailer-mounted water tank and pump that he pulled to the scene with his tractor. Cloverdale firefighters were able to then finish extinguishing the fire and prevent any spread to surrounding trees and brush.

The fire resulted in an estimated $15,000 worth of damage. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
