Vegetation Fire Flares Up Along Boonville Road

The McNab Incident [Photograph sent by a reader]

The McNab Incident flared up along Highway 253 and a full wildland fire response was dispatched to the scene. Scanner traffic indicates the Incident Commander describes the fire as 2 acres in size with the potential to grow to 15-20 acres. The rate of spread was characterized as “moderate.”

Some of the initial resources were cancelled with the Incident Commander saying fire crews could have the fire out in ten minutes.

Ground and air fire resources were dispatched to tend to the flames.

One structure was identified as threatened due to its location up the hill above the flames.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
