The cause of the fire has not yet been determined. California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, Tuolumne County Fire Department, two crews from Baseline Conservation Camp, an air tanker, air attack and helicopter from Columbia Air Base responded to the blaze. A lone firefighter walks across the charred remains of a field after a grass fire along Highway 108.
