Vehicle on Fire at the Eel River Campground East of Covelo


Scanner traffic beginning at approximately 9:15 p.m. indicated a residential structure fire was burning at the Eel River Campground on Mendocino Pass Road east of Covelo. Initial reports indicated a trailer was burning.

The Incident Commander, after laying eyes on the incident, is reporting that initial reports were incorrect and said a vehicle is fully involved, unoccupied, and no structures are threatened.

Covelo Fire and CAL FIRE personnel have both been dispatched to the incident.

UPDATE 9:40 p.m.: The Incident Commander described the fire as contained.

Please remember that this story is unfolding. Information is being reported as we gather it. However, some of the information coming from witnesses and initial official reports could be wrong. We will do our best to get the facts but, in the case that something is inaccurate, we will update with correct information as soon as we can.

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced largely by the urban elite. 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.
