Field fire at Frazier Lake Road and Bloomfield Avenue

Vegetation fire at Frazier Lake Road and Bloomfield Avenue

Crews from the Gilroy and Morgan Hill Fire Departments, South Santa Clara Fire District and Calfire responded to a roughly 40-acre vegetation fire at Frazier Lake Road and Bloomfield Avenue in Gilroy this afternoon. At around 3:30 p.m. firefighters were working on “cutting off the head,” or containing the head of the fire, according to an employee from Treehaven station on Hecker Pass Road.

A helicopter was also on scene releasing fire retardant over the cut hay field.

As of 3:45 p.m. crews were still working to snuff out the flames, which continued to kick up again due to strong wind gusts. The fire was completely out a little before 4 p.m.

Fire Captain Jim Rajskup of Calfire said the cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
