Vegetation fire near Fairhaven scorches over nine acres

SAMOA, Calif. (KIEM) – A vegetation fire broke out on the Samoa Peninsula near Fairhaven Saturday evening. According to the Samoa Peninsula Fire District, the blaze scorched 9.2 acres.

The vegetation fire required the assistance of five different fire agencies. California Highway Patrol officers, along with deputies from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, stopped traffic on New Navy Base Road. Simpson Private Road was completely shut down due to the fire itself.

The remote location forced firefighters to rely on water shoveling, as there were no fire hydrants nearby. Samoa Peninsula Fire District Assistant Chief Troy Smith said water tenders played a key role in containing the fire.

In addition to strong winds, Smith said the terrain posed a major challenge.

“Not only is it up and down, there’s a lot of heavy brush and heavy trees that made a difficult factor for us to gain control of this fire,” Smith said.

There were no reported injuries. Smith said the incident is another reminder that fire season is right around the corner.
