Mariposa County fire burns 70 acres

Sunday, September 19, 2010

Firefighters in Mariposa County were mopping up hotspots Sunday morning after a wildfire that burned about 70 acres this weekend.

The fire started Saturday afternoon, near Telegraph Hill and Whitlock Road.

That's the same area that burned during the devastating telegraph fire in 2008. Cal-fire officials say this blaze did not threaten any homes.

About 150 firefighters from Mariposa, Madera, and the Sierra National Forest worked to put out the fire.
