All day, dark clouds have obscured the Santa Anas from view (think Mordor). But tonight, they are visible and the fire has moved north and back up the eastern side of the Mt. Range and is cresting the ridge. These were taken from the balcony just now (in Laguna Canyon area).

The pictures show an area of the Mts. that is Modjeska Peak (Santiago Peak is the red dot on the right side of the picture), as viewed from the west

They are calling the "combined" River and Ranch fires in Mendocino the largest in CA history. However, I have yet to find a map that shows the fires have actually joined. The maps accompanying the articles still show them as separate. Anybody have an explanation as to why they are calling it one fire when it isn't?

Well, isn’t it obvious Jody?

The second largest and the largest fires in California history are in 2 consecutive years? Really?

This so-called Mendocino Complex Fire is actually not 1, not 2, but 37 separate fires that have been lassoed together in the fake, unfair, lying MSM to create the impression that this is part of what they call an “extreme weather event” which is, according to those fat cat globalist UN lackey “scientists,” supposed to be more common under climate change hysteria.

This is obviously part of a conspiracy between deep state forest service employees, AGW fanatics, Antifa, BLM and Hillary Clinton to foist their fraudulent global warming hoax on a gullible public.

Several fire fighters have already “accidentally” died fighting these fires. They would have exposed the truth—how many more must die for Hillary’s lies?

Good catch Jody, I’m surprised Q anon isn’t all over this to make sure all true patriots can be confident that “it is a known fact.”

The fires are being used as a cover to burn the fetal body parts from Hillary's pizzeria . If you look carefully you will notice the parts being dropped from the tankers mixed in with pepperoni and retardent....

so here's a question. how do they know the babies were retarded and if they weren't isn't it irresponsible to use them as fire retardant. for all we know they were perfectly healthy babies and they're just adding fuel to the fire.

sadly we must stop all this nonsense because the ranch fire all by itself is now the single biggest fire at 287,479 acres. the river fire is still below 50k and nearing full containment.

but to answer your question, it has to do with how the fires are being managed and this is based on proximity, which usually ends up as merging but not always.

The Ranch fire has burned north toward Stonyford, Ladoga, and Site Ranch country. This is the chaparral country south of Snow Mountain Wilderness, north of Clear Lake.



Basically all this country (taken from Goat Mountain). You can see Clear Lake in distance and Mt St Helena behind it. A lot of the terrain in between Clear Lake and the viewer either has burned or is under imminent threat to burn.

Is anyone else having trouble with inciweb, or is it just me?

3000 acre Boyds fire started Saturday. Not a peep on inciweb. I wonder how often they update. I rely on regional reports.

Same with the Grass Valley fire near Coulee Dam. 75,000+ acres. Nada.

Might not be on Inciweb because it's different jurisdiction ?
