This just in from the scanner. The fire is a 1/2 acre. A local person on a dozer is helping. Firefighters are making good progress .

Lat and long given on the scanner show where firefighters thought the Benbow fire is located. Correction: Our error. There is a fire here but it is not the one referenced.
