The River and Ranch fires have been combined by Cal Fire into a grouping known as the Mendocino Complex. The River Fire, which started near Hopland, and the Ranch Fire, which started near Potter Valley, have now caused evacuations in Lake, Colusa, and Glenn Counties. Meanwhile, other fires have caused much damage, with smoke spreading all over Northern California.
