Crews are battling a 15-acre wildfire near Frenchman Lake in Plumas County.

The Chance Fire started Friday at 11am and is burning in grass, brush and timber. Firefighters say a smoke column is visible across Sierra Valley.

Crews say the fire is backing down a hill towards a tree plantation and a Forest Service work station. There’s no immediate word on if any homes are threatened.

Earlier today, about a dozen small fires were all quickly contained in the central/eastern Plumas National Forest after 300+ lightning strikes that occurred on Thursday.
