Scanner traffic beginning at 9:06 p.m. indicated a reporting party told dispatch there was a “building on fire” on the 500 block of Fort Bragg’s South Franklin Street.

When arriving at the scene, the Incident Commander confirmed the location was a family residence and there was a “small fire” burning inside the building.

Incoming units were canceled by the Incident Commander who determined that the fire could be handled with a single fire engine.

UPDATE 9:47 p.m.: Walnut Street and Chestnut Street are both closed as personnel mop up the incident.

Our photographer Robert Bozzolli was able to get on the scene to capture Fort Bragg Fire Department hard at work on the incident.

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.
