At approximately 9:40 a.m., scanner traffic indicated multiple structures were on fire in the Laytonville Trailer Park near the 44000 block of Highway 101.

Laytonville Fire Department Chief Sue Carberry confirmed a single double-wide trailer has burned and there was spread to the wildland. 

Chief Carberry added the Long Incident involved one main structure, some others involved, and a “little spread into vegetation.”

Initially, there were significant threats to nearby wildland but the most recent dispatches from the Incident Commander indicate the fire has been mostly contained to the mobile home park where two burning structures were successfully knocked down.

Laytonville Fire Department and Cal Fire have responded to the incident. Initial air resources ordered to the incident have been canceled as the fire has been contained to the mobile home park. 

UPDATE 10:47 a.m.: Laytonville Fire Chief Sue Carberry told us the Long Incident is contained with one structure lost, two damaged, and no resulting injuries.
