Two Structures Burn in Clearlake—Two Burn Victims Medevaced From the Scene

Last night’s structure fire in Clearlake as seen from the Lower Lake AlertCalifornia Fire camera

Two structures ignited early this morning in Clearlake. Firefighters stopped the incident from spreading into nearby structures and vegetation but sadly two burn victims were transported to out-of-area hospitals via air ambulance.

The incident began around 12:55 a.m. near Bush Street and 13th Street. Early reports indicated two structures were fully involved with flames threatening other structures nearby and throwing spot fires into nearby vegetation. This prompted a full wildland response.

Once on scene, first responders located two burn patients who required medical treatment prompting a medevac via air ambulance.

Thank you to On the Scanner Lake County for alerting us to the incident and providing information.

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.
