Second Big Basin wildfire in one week

BOULDER CREEK, Calif. - It's a busy time for firefighters throughout California. Crews responded to another wildfire in Big Basin State Park Thursday evening.

The fire, just west of Big Basin Park Headquarters, broke out around six.

By nighttime, crews had the fire contained but were expected to remain on scene.

Meanwhile, a nearby fire that broke out Tuesday was controlled about an hour before.

Both fires are still under investigation and there's no word yet on whether they're connected.
