House, brush fire in Yosemite Lakes injures one

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

One firefighter was injured while battling a house fire in Yosemite Lakes.

Madera County fire officials say the flames ignited around 3 a.m. Wednesday morning at a house on Yosemite Springs in Yosemite Lakes. The house was vacant.

Authorities have not said what caused the fire, but about a quarter acre of land was also scorched. Firefighters contained the flames but say it could have been much worst because there was not enough clearance of the brush around the home and the fire could have spread to other homes.
