In addition…

The wind is gusting again as it does normally in the afternoons in Ukiah. The thermal satellite is indicating two new fires in the Low Gap and Orr areas. It has been reported by Glenmaple that these are control burns done by CalFire.

We’ll continue to monitor it and update here again tonight.
