Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2015 — Investigators have determined a spark from a tree harvesting saw was the cause of the Dodge Fire that has burned about 11,000 acres of sagebrush, grass and juniper trees in a remote part of Lassen County.

The Bureau of Land Management determined the spinning blade in a feller-buncher machine caused a spark, setting fire to dry grass. Workers were unable to quell the flames with available tools and equipment, and the fire spread quickly into tall sagebrush and junipers.
