At 1:05 p.m., Multiple fire agencies are responding to a residential structure fire north of Hopland that began after a controlled burn escaped its lines. A firefighter from the scene is reporting a red barn is on fire.

Crews are accessing the fire via Old River Road across from Crawford Road.

Scanner traffic indicated the residential structure fire is in the vicinity of Jackson Keys Winery and the Crofoot Ranch.

Responding agencies include CALFIRE, Hopland Fire Department, and the Ukiah Valley Fire Authority.

UPDATE 1:36 p.m.: The Incident Commander has reported that initial reports were incorrect. The fire is actually a large debris fire next to an “ag building”. Hopland Fire is now the only one responding.

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.
