Structure Fire Sends Flames and Black Smoke Skyward in Covelo This Morning

[Video provided by Thomas Helmbrecht]

This morning at approximately 7:30 a.m. Covelo Fire was dispatched to an “unknown type” fire burning in the 22000 block of Refuse Road.

Scanner traffic indicated that when Covelo Fire personnel arrived the Incident Commander determined a structure was on fire and found a power line had fallen down as a result of the flames creating a “life/safety hazard”.

Around 8:10 a.m., the Incident Commander reported the fire was knocked down and would require approximately an hour and a half to mop up the scene.

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.
