A fire is burning in northern Mendocino near Red Mountain Road. Cal Fire has responded. About 3 p.m. the dispatchers sent engines and air support to the area.
Daywalker, a local resident, tells us that their family is preparing to leave if the fire isn’t stopped. “I’m going to walk back over there and check the status [of the fire]- got our kitty carriers handy and a can of tuna to pop if we can’t get them rounded up.”
UPDATE 4:42 p.m.: Daywalker says, “The fire looks out – but I can see a small amount of smoke behind the other side of the mountain. Might just be blow over. Planes are getting quiet.”
