Prunedale Fire Forces Polling Place Relocation
November 6, 2012
Monterey County Elections Department officials were forced to relocate the Prunedale polling place at the American Legion Hall after a fire forced its evacuation.
Firefighters are currently fighting the 10-acre wildfire that at one point looked to be encroaching on the polling station. Officials say engine crews and aerial assets are being used to fight the blaze.
Prunedale residents that were slated to poll at the American Legion are now being directed to Prunedale Grange Hall located at 17890 Moro Road.
So far no one has been injured and minimal damage has been sustained. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
