The small flare up as seen from the Redwood Valley AlertFire Redwood Valley Camera

Redwood Valley-Calpella firefighters were dispatched at approximately 8:00 a.m. regarding a fire that burned in vegetation within the burn scar of Wednesday’s 80 acre Broiler Fire. The Incident Commander described the fire as a “small spot” with “no spread.”

Scanner traffic indicates the fire was limited in size and required only the Redwood Valley-Calpella fire agency to respond.

Yesterday, Redwood Valley-Calpella Chief Don Dale his crews would be working on hotspots throughout the affected area and suggested this weekend’s winds and heat could contribute to potential flare-ups throughout the area.

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 matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
