The Mendocino complex fire is still at 93 percent contained, with crews continuing to make progress on suppression and mop up. Cal Fire says the fire size remains at just over 410,00 acres and that it is still hoping for 100 percent containment by Saturday. Smoke conditions are expected to improve through this afternoon with a generally favorable trend through the rest of the week. The U.S. Forest Service says the northern half of the Mendocino National Forest remains open and can be accessed via Forest Highway 7. Officials also say the forest areas around Plaskett Meadows and Hammerhorn Lake are open for recreation activities.

A man from Humboldt County has been accused of stealing two cars in Mendocino County, crashing into another, breaking into a home, and using stolen credit cards to buy fast food. Police say the first car was stolen from a home on Gardens Avenue in Ukiah early Monday and was later rammed into another car not far away. Then on Tuesday morning police say the same suspect, identified as 32-year-old Nathaniel Cady, broke into a home on Banker Boulevard, rummaged through the house while the residents slept, grabbed some credit cards and a set of keys and drove off in that stolen car. Police say Cady then used the stolen cards to buy food at a Taco Bell and later at a Burger King, where he was arrested. He is being held on $75,000 bail.
