Multiple Burning Vehicles in Kelseyville Ignite Nearby Vegetation

The Pharo Fire sent a dark column of smoke into the sky[Screenshot from the Cow Mountain 2 Alert Wildfire Web Camera, enhanced to show details of the smoke]

At approximately 1:30 p.m. the Pharo Fire began burning in the Lake County community of Kelseyville engulfing cars, boats, and RVs in flames that would then spark nearby vegetation.

Ground and air resources have been fighting back the flames located near the intersection of Pharo Place × Glebe Road. As of 2:15 p.m., firefighters have successfully kept the fire from spreading beyond 1.5 acres.

As of 2:21 p.m., the forward progress of the vegetation fire had been stopped and resources will be working to extinguish the vehicles and other debris.

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 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 told.
