To the west and east, the Ranch Fire fire is settling down behind containment lines. According to Cal Fire, “Fire crews continue working on bringing bring the east edge of the fire back in to the Mendocino National Forest, but obstacles and access still prove to be challenging.”
To the south, Cal Fire says, “Crews…continue suppression repair and patrol.
However, the northern line of the fire continues to roll through remote mountain areas towards the Snow Mountain Wilderness and is now roughly about 15 miles directly east of Willits.

suppress an active fire front that is pushing north.”
No growth is expected today on the River Fire. Containment is now almost complete.
