FORESTVILLE (KRON) — One person is in the hospital with serious burns after a one-acre fire broke out along the shores of the Russian River in Sonoma County. Three others were treated for minor injuries.
The fire started at about 3:20 p.m. near Laurel Avenue and Summerhome Park Road northwest of Sebastopol.
Five fire trucks from Sonoma County and ten units from Calfire responded to the blaze. Two tankers and a helicopter also dropped water on the flames from the sky.
Firefighters say the biggest challenge they faced was getting all of the equipment down a very narrow one-land road to get to the fire.
The cause of the fire remains unclear.
