Approximately three acres were charred on Friday, March 21st, in the Santa Clara River bottom, north/east of the Grimes Canyon bridge. The 1:35p.m. blaze shot flames 90 feet into the air and drew a large crowd of onlookers. Fillmore Fire, along with County and Santa Paula, quickly knocked down the flames. Bamboo (Arundo) could be heard exploding, before the fire was contained. At least one powerline was damaged.
