May 28, 2012 (Boulevard) – A vehicle collision severed a power pole near White Star Fire Station,, sparking a brush fire in the 2100 block of Tierra Del Sol in Boulevard this afternoon.
The fire burned four acres but was swiftly brought under control with no damage to structures, though several homes were in close proximity to the blaze.
“Several large old pine trees went up like roman candles,” Boulevard Planning Group Chair Donna Tisdale told ECM. “Wish I had a video camera so you could hear the intensity and of the flames consuming the dense vegetation.”
