Scanner traffic indicates that a full wildland fire response has been deployed to the Philo area due to reports of a vegetation fire.

Dispatch reports that the fire flared up between two residences near the 16000 block of Indian Creek Road. The fire is reportedly two acres in size burning in both grass and oak woodlands.

The Alert Wildfire Philo camera shows a plume of white smoke developing in the area.

UPDATE 1:29 p.m.: Multiple firefighting aircraft are above the fire working to suppress the flames.

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 matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
