The Mendocino Complex Fires continue to cause problems in northern California. This fire is actually composed of two different fires, the River Fire and the Ranch Fire. The River Fire is 6 miles north of Hopland, CA, and the Ranch Fire is 8 miles northeast of Ukiah, CA. Both fires have burned a total of 74,408 acres and is only 12% contained. The fire is growing rapidly, and full containment is not expected until August 8, 2018. On top of that, 12,200 structures are still being threatened. Many mandatory evacuations have been put in place for Mendocino county and Lake county. Unfortunately, hot, dry, and windy conditions will remain in the forecast for northern California.   For WeatherNation -Meteorologist Shelly Lindblade
