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 1:30 p.m., the blaze was estimated at less than an acre near the Hihn Hammond Truck Trail and was burning debris and dead vegetation on the forest floor, a CAL FIRE spokesperson said. No structures are threatened.
