[UPDATE 10:33 p.m.] Large Structure on Fire Off Hwy 255 West of Arcata
Beck said, “The fire looks like it is in one of the old buildings that they used to cut the logs into lumber. It looks like it is getting bigger.”
Firefighters are responding to the scene.
UPDATE 10:33 p.m.: The metal building is mostly okay, according to Jonathan Beck who stayed on the scene. He said that he spoke to a firefighter and firefighters suspect that slag from metal being cut in the building earlier landed in sawdust and smoldered all day before catching flames.
