WILLITS, 9/11/19 -- A vehicle fire southeast of Willits was quickly contained, this morning, though smoke may still be visible from the the Little Lake Valley in the hills to the east.
The vehicle caught fire in the 5700 block of Ridgewood Rd. which is in the Pine Mountain area, and briefly put off some dark smoke which appeared from the valley to be a larger fire.
Little Lake Fire as well as Cal Fire responded, and Cal Fire's Copter 101. By 10:35 a.m. both Little Lake Fire and Cal Fire were reporting that the fire was under control and had not spread into the nearby vegetation thanks to the quick action of both firefighters and people originally at the scene.
