Vegetation Fire Near Blue Lakes Quickly Extinguished by Locals


Scanner traffic around 1:58 p.m. indicated ground and air firefighting resources were dispatched to a location just west of Blues Lakes near the intersection with Highway 20 and Old Highway 20.

Within ten minutes of being dispatched, the majority of resources were canceled. Reports indicated that locals extinguished the small fire and air resources above the incident area and that nothing was showing.

The California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information page described the incident as a “small fire off of the roadway.”

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.
