BOULDER CREEK (CBS SF) — Crews responded Sunday afternoon to a fire at Big Basin Redwoods State Park in an area that burned during last year’s CZU Lightning Complex fires.
The blaze, dubbed the Basin Fire, was reported about 12:11 p.m., and Cal Fire posted photos of a plume of smoke coming from the remote area.
As of 3:20 p.m., forward progress of the blaze, estimated at about two acres near the Hihn Hammond Truck Trail, was stopped, according to Cal Fire CZU. The fire burned debris and dead vegetation on the forest floor but no structures were threatened.
