Yesterday evening at approximately 9:45 p.m. firefighters were deployed to a structure fire burning in the 100 block of Ukiah’s Porizio Lane, located directly east of the Ukiah Natural Foods Co-op.

Ukiah Valley Fire Authority Battalion Chief Eric Singleton told us that upon arrival firefighters located a single-story residential structure with significant flames burning in the front-facing, right side of the building.

Crews made quick progress on the fire successfully knocking down the flames. Firefighters conducted multiple searches of the building to make sure it was unoccupied.

Battalion Chief Singleton told us the structure was known to be uninhabited and investigators are working to determine how the fire ignited.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. 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.
