Cal Fire crews remain on the scene maintaining containment of the 19 acre fire in Knights Ferry just south east of the covered bridge and the 50’s Roadhouse.
The vegetation fire known as Willms Fire was first reported as a 50 acre threat near Highway 108 and Willms Rd late Tuesday evening. This was later corrected to the current 19 acres with Cal Fire noting “acreage changed do to better mapping” via social media.
At last report the fire was said to be at 65% contained with forward spread stopped. There is no report of cause at this time.
