Community Press Release

Chileno Valley Hay Fire

Petaluma, CA- July 22nd, 2016

Sonoma County Fire investigators believe the barn full of hay that went up in flames at the Moreda Dairy on Wednesday morning, likely caught fire through spontaneous combustion. Up to 500 tons of hay had been stacked inside the barn at the Chileno Valley Road dairy before the fire was reported around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Firefighters were able to keep the fire from spreading to nearby stacks of hay outside the barn and the grassy hillside near the fire. Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire and reduce the amount of smoke much quicker than planned thanks to some heavy equipment and several water tenders shuttling water.

Wilmar firefighters returned to the scene yesterday to continue extinguishing hot spots and assist the property owners with clean up.

Wilmar would like to thank our neighboring agencies at CalFire, Marin Co. FD, Rancho Adobe, Coast Guard FD, Lakeville and Sonoma County Fire and Emergency Services for the assistance they provided during this large event.

This will be the final press release for this incident.

Fire Explorer Program

Wilmar Fire began a Fire Explorer Program in the year 2000, which has been a huge success to this day.  High School students interested in the fire service are given a “hands-on” approach to all the different duties and responsibilities of a Firefighter.  Many of our Explorer’s go on to become Volunteer Firefighters for Wilmar, and some eventually end up with paid career jobs in the fire service!
