Multiple fire engines responded to the report of a vehicle fire in the 3500 block of Curtis Avenue off of LK Boulevard in Arcata about 4:37 p.m. today.
However, the source of the smoke was a BBQ in an abandoned single wide trailer, according to Sean Campbell Battalion Chief at Arcata Fire. He explained to our reporter Oliver Cory that it appeared someone had been squatting in the abandoned trailer and using a BBQ as a heat source.
When crews arrived on scene, they found no one in the building and the still smoking Weber…The building sustained no fire damage.
