[UPDATE 8:49 p.m.] Motorhome on Fire on 299, Possible Spread to Wildlands
According to scanner traffic, multiple agencies are responding to a motorhome on fire out Hwy 299 near mile marker 26 about 5:13 p.m. (See map below.) The blaze is being called the Snow Incident and concern is being expressed about possible spread to the wildlands.
With the fire burning east of Weaverville, another wildland fire on Hwy 299 would disrupt traffic and could spread resources thin.
UPDATE 8:49 p.m.: We don’t have many details but Laura Coleman from Cal Fire did tell us that the incident is contained.
