MENDOCINO Co., 8/1/18 -- A vehicle fire on U.S. Route 101, near the junction with Hwy. 162 was quickly extinguished, with no wildland involvement, due to the rapid response from local fire departments. The car caught fire near mile marker 56 on Hwy. 101, around 12:10 p.m. and became fully involved with a few minutes -- but an incredibly rapid response from Little Lake Fire quickly got the situation under control.
The car was extinguished without spreading into the brush nearby.
Of course there are currently three other large fires burning in the county, and resources are stretched thing -- so stay vigilante out there Mendocino.
