​A man on a tractor crashes on the 101 and rolls, bashing into a car. The CHP says Donald Lind of Fort Bragg was on the tractor on the northbound side of the highway north of Bell Springs Road when for some reason he overturned on a curve, his cab crashed into a female driver from Oregon, then a load of logs fell off the tractor, spilling across all lanes of the highway which had to be shut down on and off for about four hours, so the scene could be cleaned. Lind was airlifted to a hospital in Redding with suspected serious injuries. No word if the female driver was injured.

A cause for the massive County Fire has been determined. Cal Fire says it looks like an improperly installed electric livestock fence ignited the 90,000 acre fire, the biggest one burning in the state right now. It’s burning in Napa and Yolo counties and is currently 86% contained. The fire’s been burning nearly 2 weeks after starting on Highway 16 in the community of Guinda. The fire’s taken down 20 structures and damaged three. No word from Cal Fire who installed the fence or where it was exactly. But the person responsible has been cited. The Cal Fire Battalion Chief says they’re fighting quote, “islands” of fire inside the northern part of the fire. The fire could grow as tomorrow’s forecast calls for triple digit heat and low humidity.
