MORGAN HILL — A 20-acre brush fire ignited in Morgan Hill east of the 101 Sunday afternoon, according to CalFIRE, which has sent tankers and air units to respond to the blaze.
The Malech Fire is burning in an area with little road access, which means the fire may grow as crews try to respond, according to a CalFIRE representative.
This is the #MalechFire. AA460 now overhead reports 10-15 acres in light flashy fuels w/ moderate ROS on the east side of US-101, potential for 50 acres. No roads in the immediate area for ground access. https://t.co/M6Qu07OU7h
