An 81-acre wildfire that broke out on property owned by the University of California’s Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, is 100 percent contained, Cal Fire said Monday evening.
The Scott Fire sparked in Yuba County, about 5 miles east of Browns Valley off of Scott Forbes Road, early Monday afternoon, according to Cal Fire’s incident page.
Forward progress was stopped on the blaze around 1:10 p.m., which started in a UC field station, Cal Fire’s Nevada-Yuba Placer unit said in a tweet. Cal Fire said it was a grass fire with a slow rate of spread.
The vegetation fire burned west of the University of California’s Sierra Foothill Research and Extension Center, but no structures are threatened and no evacuation orders had been issued for the wildfire.
