A fire started around 6:35 p.m. in Myers Flat, off Myers Avenue “behind the red barn,” according to callers to 911. The Incident Commander arrived on scene by 6:52 p.m., confirming that the fire has already consumed one acre but is spreading slowly.

Tanker 96 and an air attack are on scene.

Emergency responders are working now to contain the blaze. Local residents should try to avoid the area.

Please remember that information gathered from initial reports is subject to revision as more facts become available.

UPDATE 7:04 p.m.: The Tanker is returning to base (we believe fully loaded but that is unconfirmed). The helicopter is still committed to the fire for probably the next half hour, according to dispatch speaking over the scanner.

Thank you for reporting these fires. We are off to a bad start to fire season. Mike at weathernorcal.com showed graphic yesterday of where we are acreage wise compared to last year and last five years and it was stunning. Would be great if map provided with each fire reported especially during wind weather/ fire season ; without a map reporting is for ling-time locals only. All readers not familiar with every place name or even counties.
