Update: Air Resources Headed To Fire Near Ebbetts Pass Area
Update at 2:08 p.m.: If you heard aircraft overhead, Columbia air resources were among the responding units to an incident in Avery.
According to CAL Fire, the Love Fire was a vehicle fire that escaped into vegetation in the vicinity of Moran and Love Creek roads between Ebbetts Pass Highlands and Fly-In Acres.
CAL Fire spokesperson Emily Kilgore reports it was a single-vehicle incident and the fire had minimal spread into the vegetation so Columbia aircraft were called to return back to base.
