Vegetation Fire Near Hwy 299, One Lane Closed
A vegetation fire has closed the westbound lane of Hwy 299 about one mile east of Hwy 101 near 3G Trucking. The incident commander (IC) can be heard on the scanner reporting that the burn appears to have spread from a homeless camp. As of 7 p.m., the flames have burned an approximately 40 foot area, he said. Then goes on to say the fire is moving slowing in heavy brush.
The IC then asks for law enforcement backup. “Transient trying to leave,” he states. “Believe he’s responsible for the fire.”
UPDATE 7:16 p.m.: Contained.
