Fire blots out power in Corralitos

CORRALITOS — An early morning fire blazed through several dozen towering redwood trees and knocked out power around Corralitos Wednesday on Corralitos Road near Varni Road.

The 4:40 a.m. blaze forced fire crews to shut down Corralitos Road for about two hours because power lines crashed to the pavement.

Cal Fire engineer Stephon Parson said firefighters had to be careful dousing the flames because of the live power lines. Once a crew from Pacific Gas & Electric de-energized the lines, firefighters were able to move in and put out the fire.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The incident did not interrupt classes at the nearby Bradley Elementary School.
