Scotia, Rio Dell and CalFire have been sent to the Scotia Bluffs near the railroad tracks for a fire burning in vegetation. The first fire personnel on scene reports that it is “an acre or less. However it has potential to move uphill.” From the green bridge south of Rio Dell, the man says, the fire is about 1/4 mile downriver along the tracks.
UPDATE 9:48 p.m.: Scanner traffic indicates that the fire is spreading rapidly.
UPDATE 10:20 p.m.: According to the Incident Commander, the fire is no longer spreading. Three small fires were found.
