The Sheriff’s office has lifted evacuation orders for the community of Hopland, including the Hopland Rancheria (Hopland Band of Pomo Indians) and the order is reduced to a warning south of 8000 Old River Road, east of the Russian River, north of Highway 175, west of mile marker 5.6 on Highway 175; Evacuated areas east of mile marker 5.6 on Highway 175, north of Highway 175, west of the Mendocino-Lake County Line, and south of the fire remain under an Evacuation Order.

The air quality in Mendocino and Lake Counties from the fires is hazy, making it hard to see, the dry hot climate mixed with wind has deteriorated the quality of air. Right now the air monitors show particulate matter concentrations in the ‘Healthy’ to ‘Hazardous’ ranges for different areas of inland Mendocino County. Surrounding wildfires are also active so a warning to expect prolonged smoke impacts to air quality. Protective masks are available at the Ukiah, Willits, and Covelo libraries. The Mendocino County Public Health Officer warns that heavy smoke can pose a danger to everyone. Everyone should stay indoors as much as possible and especially people with heart or lung disease, including
asthma, should consider leaving areas of heavy smoke if possible.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office has evacuated the Lake County Jail due to the fires. 285 inmates have been moved and are now in Alameda County. Lake County Correctional and Medical Staff were a part of the effort in Alameda County to care for and oversee the inmates from Lake County. It also means there’s no way for visitors to see Lake County inmates in Alameda County.
