Fire crews arrived following a 6:22 a.m. alarm to find approximately 900 square feet of brush smoldering on the shoreline in the “Shipwreck” area.

Rough terrain made access to the area difficult but crews were able to access and extinguish the fire using a four-wheel drive firefighting vehicle.

The fire was deemed extinguished at 8:21 a.m.

MFD reports that the cause of the fire has not been determined.
