The Jones Fire sparked early in the morning on August 17th from lightning causing wildfire that had potential to move quickly in the South Yuba River Canyon off Jones Bar Road. Learn and ask questions about the joint public safety response from first responders, impacts to public lands, and support efforts from County departments and local partners.
