Update 7:30 p.m.: A new Nixle alert from the Sheriff’s Office has cancelled the “situational awareness” for the Laytonville Fire.
WILLITS, 4/29/23 — The Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office has issued two different Nixle alerts for structure fires, one in the greater Willits area at “33465 Bertha Keys Ways,” and one in the vicinity of 3511 Spyrock Road in the Laytonville area. Both alerts request situational awareness for those in the vicinity, but say no further action is needed.
According to scanner traffic, fire crews are on both scenes and some response calls are being reduced or cancelled due to the fire not being as reported on or being no longer needed to the Spyrick incident, but that has not been confirmed with official sources.
