It started on June 10, 2019, off of Calaveras Road and Weller Road, just east of Milpitas in Santa Clara County, California.

Fire crews have successfully held this to a small 35 acres and 90% containment.  Full containment is expected on Wednesday, June 12th.

This evening, firefighters will continue to reinforce containment lines and mop-up operations, as well as extinguishing any hot spots may rekindle in unburned fuels.

A firefighter was reportedly injured during yesterday’s fire suppression efforts. His condition is unknown.

As fire managers were managing this incident, another wildfire ignited called the WATER FIRE on the same day and located just west of the Calaveras Reservoir.  Crews were able to stop the forward spread of this fire.
