Firefighters have been deployed to the “Soda Fire” burning east of Boonville along State Route 253.

A firefighter on scene on the 14000 block of SR-253 reported that a forklift was on fire which spread minimally to nearby vegetation in close proximity to a fuel tank.

The initial callout around 11:55 p.m. requested a full wildland fire response including air assets.

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.
