Firefighters responded this afternoon to a smoldering stump in the Arcata Forest.

UPDATE 3 p.m.: Fire Captain Nathan Padula said that someone had abandoned a campfire, it had smoldered for awhile and then moved into a nearby tree trunk. It was “deep-seated,” Padula said. Crews were attempting to break it up with axes and other tools to smother the fire.
