Small wildfire burning near Frenchman Lake

ChanceFireA wildfire about a mile south of Frenchman Lake had burned 10 acres by Friday afternoon.

According the U.S. Forest Service, the Chance Fire was likely caused by a lightening strike.
 


The fire, discovered by an aircraft pilot who was searching for fires early Friday morning, was backing down a hill. It was mainly burning grass, brush and a few trees.

The fire was threatening a work structure, just west of the Frenchman Fire Station.

A column of smoke from the fire was visible in across Sierra Valley.

Forest Service Information Officer Lee Anne Schramel said there were fire crews on the ground and air support on the scene. Smoke jumpers were reportedly on their way to help fight the fire.

This is a developing story. More information will be reported as it becomes available.
