Neenach – Fairmont, CA (Friday, June 30, 2017 at 3:20 p.m.) Joanne Childers Word reports there is a fire at Avenue D and 3 Points Road on Friday afternoon. This week—for four days now—there have been several fires in City of Los Angeles “trashy mulch” that has been laid in long piles along dirt roads and spread on fields in the Western Antelope Valley. It is burning, according to other residents, like a bog fire, and causing brush fire runs. Firefighters say the mulch keeps flaring back up after they put fires out, Neenach retired firefighter Jeff Zimmerman reports.
