[UPDATE 10:31 p.m.] Humboldt County Firefighters Headed to Lake County Megafire
Diana Totten from Briceland Fire said that they will most likely be providing structure protection but she isn’t sure where they’ll be stationed or how long they will be there.
According to Arcata Fire, “The Arcata Fire District is still fully staffed and ready to respond to local calls.” This morning’s roll call of fire resources in Humboldt County showed just six Cal Fire engines for the entire county. There are municipal fire engines as well as volunteer fire department resources available, however.
UPDATE 10:31 p.m.: Arcata Fire posted a photo taken by a member of the Fortuna crew as the task force headed south.
Be careful, folks.
