Millerton Fire is Out

( MILLERTON LAKE FIRE IS OUT)
 CAL-FIRE CREWS ARE CLEANING UP  THE SITE OF THE SEASON'S FIRST BIG WILDFIRE, ALTHOUGH THE BLAZE NEAR MILLERTON LAKE WAS FULLY CONTAINED WEDNESDAY EVENING.  SMOKE FROM THE 275-ACRE BLAZE FILLED THE FOOTHILLS AND NEARBY VALLEY, AND CAUSED SOME PROBLEMS FOR THOSE WITH HEART OR LUNG DISEASE.
 INVESTIGATORS WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK WITH ANYONE WHO MIGHT HAVE USED THE SAN JOAQUIN RIVER TRAIL TUESDAY AFTERNOON.  THEY ARE NOT SURE HOW THE FIRE STARTED, BUT THEY BELIEVE IT WAS MAN-CAUSED.
