You may recall that we went camping last weekend at Soda Bay just when these fires started. We kept a watchful eye on their progress and while the falling ash was annoying, we were never in any danger.
But this weekend is a different story. We would not have stayed if we were there this weekend. Officials say the Mendocino Complex Fire, which is made up of two nearby fires being treated as the same incident, has surpassed last year’s Thomas Fire (281,893-acres) to become the largest in state history.
