Cal Fire battling 1,400-acre wildfire southeast of Hollister

SAN BENITO COUNTY – Crews on Thursday were battling a 1,400-acre wildfire southeast of Hollister that started the day before.

The Coyote Fire ignited just before noon Wednesday at Panoche Road and Coyote Creek, west of Panoche, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

The blaze was 80 percent contained as of Thursday evening. Evacuation orders remained in place.

KSBW reported that the fire had destroyed two to three structures and was threatening as many as 50 others. There were no immediate reports of any injuries.

Bolado Park at 9000 Airline Highway was being used as an evacuation area but has since been placed on standby, according to the San Benito County Sheriff’s Office.

“The sheriff’s office is still in the area checking on residents and providing security,” the sheriff’s office said in an advisory. “We are grateful for the brave firefighters who are attacking this fire.”

Seven local firefighters have never experienced fires as intense and destructive as the Dixie Fire, now the third largest in the state’s history. Sunday a fresh team of three will replace three others who have been on the fire line for over two weeks.

[Updated] On Aug. 7, the Dixie Fire became the largest wildfire in California’s recent history, according to Cal Fire. Seven Hollister firefighters and two engines who joined more than 5,400 others from around the country were literally on the frontlines Aug. 5 as they tried to save the mining town of Greenville, located in Plumas County on Highway 89 east of Red Bluff  They were not successful. By morning the next day 75% of the town of a little over 1,100 was smoldering ruins, according to multiple news reports.  [note: correction made, BenitoLink originally incorrectly stated Greenville was in Yuma County].

Carlos Bedolla, interim fire chief, told BenitoLink Aug. 6 he will be driving three replacement firefighters Aug. 7 to the fire base at the Quincy Fairgrounds in Plumas County to relieve thethree who were sent in June. The normal rotation for firefighters is 14 days. Battalion Chief Phil Rossi, who was tasked to lead five-person strike teams at the Tamarack Fire in Alpine County and then was reassigned to the Dixie Fire July 26, returned to Hollister last week.

Bedolla said he had just received an update from the fire scene. The team told him as soon as they arrived outside Greenville there was a solid wall of fire horizon to horizon.

“Both our engines were at Greenville last night trying to defend it,” he said. “It’s pretty much gone, and the fire has been overrunning them. The fire went from the 13th largest in California history to the third largest overnight.”

Bedolla said one of the engines had been damaged by the fire but was still operational. He said the local firefighters have never experienced a fire of such intensity. He said while the firefighters are exhausted, there have been no injuries.

“The guys have been so overworked and so overrun they won’t be allowed to drive themselves home, so I will be taking a crew up Sunday and drive them back,” he said.

He said communication with the crew has been sporadic.

“They can’t even describe it, it’s been so overwhelming,” he said.

As he was talking to BenitoLink, Bedolla said reports were coming in that the Dixie Fire was now the largest fire in the state’s history. BenitoLink could not confirm this. He said while the crews will rotate either on a normal rotation basis or by volunteering, the engines will remain at the fire for the duration.

“With this fire season, we expect that to happen with all our vehicles and we’ll just be replacing our people,” he said.

Bedolla said Hollister will pick up the tab for overtime hours, but the California Office of Emergency Services will reimburse the city. He said in 2020 overtime pay amounted to over $500,000. He expects the cost will be much higher this year.

Fire officials said the Dixie Fire grew more than 97,000 acres since Aug. 5, and has destroyed 134 structures and threatens over 13,800 more.

CAL Fire North American OV-10A N415DF Departing KCVH Hollister


UPDATE: 11/2/20 9 p.m. - A 21-year-old man has been arrested for a series of early Monday morning fires in downtown Hollister.

David Anthony Pequeño is being charged with four counts of felony arson.  His bail is set at $1,000,004. 

Hollister Police say downtown cameras showed a vehicle seen at two of the fire locations. After watching the vehicle throughout the day, police stopped Pequeño who they saw leaving in a different car at around 2 p.m.

Police searched Pequeño's home after he was detained. A news release published Monday night writes that there are additional pending charges related to vehicle vandalism.

The fires were started the morning before Election Day. Police say- "It is important to note, at this time, the investigation has revealed no information that indicate these arsons and vandalisms are in any way political or related to the election.

UPDATE 11/2/2020 1:30 p.m. The Hollister Fire Department is investigating a series of suspicious fires that burned down two structures Monday morning.

At around 2 a.m., the fire department got a call about a car on fire on McCray Street near Santa Ana Road, and within a few minutes, another car fire was reported on Second Street near Sally Street.

After the reports of car fires, there was a report of a fire at the Cheung Sheng restaurant on 6th Street and a fire at a commercial building on the corner of 5th Street and East Street. When crews responded, the buildings were already engulfed, so they worked on putting it out and keeping it from spreading to other buildings.

Up to ten businesses were impacted by the fires. Both structure fires were total losses, but nobody was injured.

While crews were fighting fires, Hollister police got reports of slashed car tires around West Graf Road and near the two car fires. Police believe the vandalism may be connected to the fires.

The fires are considered suspicious, and the arson task force is investigating..

Law enforcement is looking at surveillance cameras in the area, and lab samples have been taken to find out if accelerants were used.

Anyone with information is asked to call Hollister police at 831-636-4330. To remain anonymous, call 800-78-CRIME.

PREVIOUS STORY: A fire in downtown Hollister has destroyed two local businesses. The fire was reported in the 200 block of 5th Street.

Mayor Ignacio Velazquez posted on Facebook some of the damage.

In Velazquez' post he said: "So sad to lose two family owned businesses, The Cheung Sheng restaurant (Red Dragon) on Sixth and East and She’s on East and Fifth. Thank you to all the firefighters involved in fighting the fires! Law enforcement is already investigating."

The San Benito County Sheriff's office released a statement saying the nearby polling locations will still be open for the election tomorrow.

"Our community should feel comfortable and encouraged to use the Vets Building and Elections Office to visit the polls. The downtown fire is only affecting East St from 4th St to 6th St. For Vets Hall access, you are encouraged to use the parking lot on 7th St west of San Benito St and walk to the polls. Thank you for being considerate to our firefighters."
