The report on the cause of last year’s destructive Mountain Fire is progressing, according to Cal Fire Information Officer Daniel Berlant. In an email last week, he said the investigation has not yet been completed.
Ten days after the fire’s start in Mountain Center, on July 25, 2013, Cal Fire Investigators determined the Mountain Fire was caused by an electrical equipment failure on private property. The electrical equipment failure occurred on the customer side of the meter.
No further details will be released until the investigation is completed.
