Fire North of Redway in Homeless Encampment–Again
Redwood Drive was temporarily closed when a fire burned north of Redway today. According to photographer Kim Sallaway, the fire was east of the road in a homeless encampment. “It is the 5th fire in this spot,” said Sallaway who is a local resident.
KMUD reports the fire was contained as of 5 p.m. Note that the fire crews are from Marin as crews are moved around to deal with fires in our area. Oscar 1 has just been called which means that all leave for firefighters in the Humboldt Del Norte area has been cancelled. Everyone is needed not only to check old fires and deal with the fire at Willow Creek but also to deal with the day to day small fires and medical incidents that fire crews are sent to.
