The negligent use of equipment and improper installation of electrical systems on cannabis farms caused four wildfires in Calaveras County between June 14 and July 11, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

Cal Fire brought three of the fires under control quickly, limiting damage to minimum acreage and vegetation, according to Cal FIre Battalion Chief Matthew Gilbert.

The July 2 Appaloosa Fire, however, charred 310 acres on numerous properties.
