Fire trucks at night

At approximately 1 a.m. there was a vegetation fire alongside Briceland Road near Shop Road. The initial 30’x30′ spot was quenched by crews from Rio Dell Fire Department (covering the Cal Fire Station), Briceland Fire Department and Redway Fire Department after it expanded to 90’x30′. An investigation is ongoing but locals believe the blaze was caused by fireworks.

UPDATE 4:12 p.m.: A photo of the evidence from last night sent by Jim Fulton.

  • I’ll bet they weren’t local. Hope our fire crews stay on it these days, because this county is being overtaken by outsider dipshits. There is going to be alot more & more of this stupidity going on around here…yay its Humboldt county..the new Disneyland for dipshits.

    • It’s funny how often people blame stuff on transplants. This generation of so Hum born and raised 18-35 year olds are very responsible for the demise of this county. Raised without much discipline and have never had to work an honest year for low wages like the rest of America. They have little appreciation and live without repercussions to their negative actions, while being put on a pedestal for being local.

    Come to Humboldt county. The new “Disneyland for Dipshits” That’s a good one! It would look good on a t-shirt.

  • Locals or not, I would imagine that they were unsupervised kids

  • But “kids” around here means anyone under 29.

  • Driftwood sculpter
