This afternoon at approximately 4:10 air and ground fire resources were dispatched to reports of a vegetation fire burning south of Laytonville near the 44000 block of North Highway 101. 

Fire engines, aircraft, a helicopter, and a dozer were en route to the incident but proved unnecessary after crews on the scene reported they had stopped the forward progress of the fire described as big a football field. 

Resources will be on scene this evening mopping up the burn area for the next three hours.

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.
