WILLITS, 7/10/21 — A wildfire is burning just off SR-1 about four miles west of Leggett, with a substantial dispatch of fire resources on the way and aircraft already departed from the Ukiah Airport.
The fire was called in at about 11:38 a.m. and was described as a spot just off the side of the road, so likely caused by a vehicle. As of 11:50 a.m. it does not appear that firefighters are yet on the scene.
