A trailer fire on Golden Dove Lane in Jamestown spread to nearby vegetation and a trash pile Sunday afternoon before it was extinguished by fire crews.

Cal Fire Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit Fire Prevention Specialist Emily Kilgore said on Monday no residents or emergency officials were reported injured as a result of the blaze.

The cause and the origin of the fire were still under investigation, she said.

Kilgore said the fire was reported at 12:26 p.m. on the 18900 block of Golden Dove Lane in Jamestown.

An involved TV was destroyed as a result of the fire, which also spread to a 50 foot by 50 foot patch of vegetation and trees and a nearby trash pile.

A Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office press release said the fire had fully engulfed the trailer when ground and air resources responded to the call.

Golden Dove Lane is less than a half mile north of the Miner’s Motel in Jamestown and less than a half mile west of Mill Villa Court in Sonora.

The Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page shared a video of a Cal Fire helicopter dumping water above a plume of smoke with information about the fire on Golden Dove Lane.

No evacuations were required at the time of the fire, a Sheriff’s Office press release stated.

Kilgore said Tuolumne County Fire, Cal Fire TCU, Sonora City Fire and Columbia College responded to the fire.

The trailer fire was contained at 12:49 p.m., and the vegetation and trash pile fire were contained at 1:11 p.m., she said.

At 1:05 p.m., the Sheriff’s Office warned the public about flying drones during a fire.

“Air resources will be grounded and unable to fly. This is extremely dangerous and prevents crews from getting the situation under control quickly, which puts the entire community in danger,” the post stated.
