UPDATE: According to Cal Fire Battalion Chief Paul Savona, State Route 36 now has one-way traffic control in place and many resources have been released.

A section of State Route 36 is being closed as firefighters respond to the report of a structure fire that is spreading into the vegetation along the roadway near the intersection with Love Lee Lane.

The report of the fire in the Carlotta area came in about 1:10 p.m.

The California Highway Patrol incident page indicates Calfire requested the closure around 1:30 p.m. for the eastbound and westbound lanes.
An incident commander described hearing “secondary explosions” when he arrived at the scene and stating that: “One structure is fully engulfed. There is no threat to the vegetation but other structures are threatened.”
Video by Tami Hoisington shows the smoke very thick.
