Photos From Friday's Mendo Fires–New Fire Starts Today!
Two fires sprang up Friday between Leggett and Laytonville. The photos above were taken by Jacob Whitney (works at Emerald Technologies) north of Bell Springs Rd near the rest area and Caltrans’ sand house. There was another one further south. Both were about 4 acres and contained by nightfall. The causes have not yet been determined.
According to KMUD, there is a vegetation fire in the Cummings area, Mendocino Co. Hwy. 101, Mile Post 83. Calfire and locals working to contain fire which started at 2:30 pm today.
Three in the same area seems suspicious. They are all within a 10 minute or so drive from each other. Could there be a firebug?
UPDATE: Contained to 5 acres. (Thanks @ kmudnews )
