Default Bull fire barrels through Riverkern

Published on Tuesday, July 27, 2010 10:14 PM PDT
At 1:45 p.m., Monday, US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and Kern County Fire Department responded to a vegetation fire in the area of Burlando Road. The fire began in Bull Run Creek, about three miles north of Kernville.

By 4:00 p.m., the wind had changed and the fast-burning fire had jumped the Kern River and threatened homes and business in the small community of Riverkern, a few miles north of Kernville on Sierra Way, also known as Mountain Road 99.

Camp Erwin Owen, a juvenile detention facility just north of Kernville that houses wards between 14 and 18, began evacuating its staff of 14, along with the 125 wards. “This is the first time in the facility's 72-year history that there has been an evacuation,” said camp director Thad Kennedy. Juveniles were transported to juvenile hall and the Crossroads facility around 5:00 p.m., Kennedy said.

Default Bull Fire grows overnight; 5 percent containment

At approximately 3:30 p.m., Monday the Kern County Probation Department was notified a fire was burning in the Riverkern area, approximately 2 miles north of the Camp Erwin Owen Facility.
The Department notified the parents and guardians of the minors who were evacuated and they were informed of their safe transport to Bakersfield. Notifications were also made to the Courts, Supervisor McQuiston, the County Administrative Office and the Superintendent of Schools Office. The minors will remain safely housed at the Crossroads Facility and Juvenile Hall until it is safe to return to the Camp Facility.
Federal, State and Local fire fighters have set up a staging area on Camp grounds and they are currently occupying the facility.
