Your Lost Coast Outpost is getting reports of a second fire in Eureka. Our onboard the Madaket correspondent Tiffany McKenzie sent in the above photo of more smoke (see McKenzie’s previous photojournalism here) from the foot of Del Norte Street near the pier. She also reports that law enforcement on the scene “had a shirtless guy cuffed and on the ground.”
