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.
