A reported chimney fire grew to a three-alarm incident Tuesday night at the Skywalker Ranch off Lucas Valley Road.
The fire was reported shortly after 5:30 p.m. as a chimney fire in the 50,000-square-foot "Main House," an office building on the property near Nicasio, firefighters said.
The private Skywalker fire crew called for help from the Marin County Fire Department, which called for backup firefighters from San Rafael. No one was injured, said county fire Battalion Chief Mike Giannini. The cause was under investigation, but Giannini said the fire apparently started in the area of a fireplace.
Giannini said the extra firefighters were called in to make sure the fire didn't spread throughout the building.
The fire caused "little to no damage," said Lucasfilm spokeswoman Emilie Nicks.
Sheriff's deputies were on scene to provide traffic control.
Lucasfilm owns three properties on 6,100 acres in the area.
Thanks to Frank Blum for the heads up!
Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
