Scanner traffic indicates that “multiple fires” have been reported between Murray Rd. and Clam Beach. Multiple fire crews have been asked to respond. At least some of the fires are near the southbound lanes of Hwy 101. Aircraft response is being held back because of heavy fog. There are reportedly multiple fires along the bike path.
One responder stated he “counted at least nine fires.”
