BRADLEY — At about 9 a.m. on June 28, CAL FIRE received reports of a vegetation fire near the community of Bradley in southern Monterey County.

California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) along with crews from South Monterey County Fire Protection District (SoMoCo) and personnel from Camp Roberts Base responded to the reported area near the intersection of Highway 101 and Alvarado Road.
