Scanner traffic beginning around 7:25 p.m. indicated a hayfield was on fire in Potter Valley on the 9700 block of East Side Potter Valley Road.

As per the Incident Commander at the scene, the field itself is a “green pasture of hay” and where the fire had grown to 1.5 acres in size.

Locals are working on the fire on the east side and the fire is “burning against the west winds. The Incident Commander reported the fire is not actively threatening other structures or wildland and would take some time to mop up.

UPDATE 7:46 p.m.: The Incident Commander reported that the fire is contained and estimated firefighters will be on the scene for thirty minutes to an hour mopping up 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.
