A 50-acre grass fire spread Tuesday afternoon through part of Stanislaus County, according to state firefighters.
The fire reportedly started around 11:23 a.m. near Highway 132 and Lake Road. The cause was not immediately clear.
By 4 p.m., Cal Fire said crews had stopped the forward spread of the fire, but flames were still uncontained.
Cal Fire crews were also in Mariposa County, fighting the 1,300-acre Hunters Fire.
[Editor’s note: an earlier version of this post had incorrectly reported that the fire was in Butte County. That error has since been corrected.]
