The fire is near exist 627.
A fair number of resources are responding but so far details are sparse. A small fire was sparked and Cal Fire aircraft appear to have responded to that. In addition, Cal Fire planes based in Ukiah have been flying over to Colusa County for a blaze in those hills.
As of 3:20 p.m. firefighters were heard to say over the scanner that a portion of the fire was looking good but that some spotting was happening.
