At approximately 2:55 p.m. firefighters were dispatched to Willow Point, a promontory along the shore of Clear Lake in the town of Lakeport, due to a small wildfire burning in the area

Upon arrival, the Incident Commander reported the fire was 20’x20′ in size, burning in brush at a slow rate of spread. Quickly after arrival, the Incident Commander canceled the resources en route to the incident knowing the firefighters on the scene could subdue the flames.

Shout out to Cole Euken and his post on the Facebook page Public Safety Scanner Lake County CA for originally reporting the incident.

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.
