On Monday, November 30, 2020, at approximately 9:28 PM, Cypress Fire Protection District, San Benito-Monterey Unit CAL FIRE, Monterey County Regional Fire District, and Monterey Fire Department, responded to a vegetation fire in the area of Highway One and Carpenter Street. Upon arrival, firefighters located a .2 acre vegetation fire in the canyon bottom by Highway One. Despite difficult access and steep terrain, firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the fire. The fire was caused by an electrical malfunction in underground powerlines.

We would like to thank the High Meadows Ridge Homeowners Association for their partnership with Cypress Fire Protection District in the fuel clearance project around the Via Mar Monte townhouses (which were in path of fire). Fuel clearance projects like this help to make communities wildfire safe.

Thank you for your proactive hazardous fuel clearance efforts, High Meadow Ridge Homeowners Association! CAL FIRE BEU
