Fire in Fairfax Meadow Held to Quarter Acre

The cause of the blaze at the Marin Town & Country Club is under investigation.

A fire in a meadow at the Marin Town & Country Club in Fairfax was held to a quarter acre Sunday afternoon, fire sources said.

The Ross Valley Fire Department received a call at 12:59 p.m. about a vegetation fire at 60 Pastori Avenue, Captain Dave Stasiowski said. The first responding units laid out hose and extinguished the fire in about 15 minutes, he said.

Fire personnel, which numbered 18, remained on the site for three hours to mop up and check for hot spots. Ross Valley Fire received help from Marin County Fire and the Fairfax Police Department. Engines from San Anselmo, Butterfield, Fairfax and Woodacre were on the scene.

No structures were threatened, and the winds were light at the time of the fire. There was no dollar amount fixed to damages, and the cause of the fire is under investigation, Stasiowski said.
