15 Acre Fire Now Burning in the Honeydew Area
Drew Barber, spokesperson for Petrolia Fire said the fire was about 15 acres when we spoke to him a little before 1 p.m. “The fire is traveling south between the river and the [Mattole Valley Charter] School,” Barber explained. “It sounds like it is not burning that hot and that fast.”
Flight Tracker shows that Cal Fire’s Copter 102 responded to the scene. Barber said that his department as well as Honeydew’s, and Rio Dell’s Fire Department which has an engine staffing the Mattole Cal Fire station, are all at the scene.
