Fire in Willow Creek

A fire started about 3:45 p.m. on Gypo Lane in Willow Creek on private property. Six Rivers National Forest Service is in charge of fighting fires in this area and local residents are letting us know that local fire departments and Forest Service resources are getting this out quickly.

As temperatures rise, this is the second vegetation fire of note today in Humboldt County. As Cal Fire Battalion Chief Jeremy Ward told us about a vegetation fire in Weott about 3 p.m., “[This is] a good reminder that fire season isn’t over.”

Please remember that this story is unfolding. Information is being reported as we gather it. However, some of the information coming from witnesses and initial official reports could be wrong. We will do our best to get the facts but, in the case that something is inaccurate, we will update with correct information as soon as we can.

UPDATE: A local resident tells us the fire appears to be completely out.
