Lightning starts two new fires in the Upper Lake Ranger District on the Mendocino National Forest. On Tuesday evening fire crews responded to the Skeleton fire, six miles east of Lake Pillsbury in the Snow Mountain Wilderness…right now it’s at approximately 20 acres. Crews are reporting a moderate rate of spread in chaparral, timber and grass. There is also the Slides 2 fire on the Upper Lake district…four miles west of Lake Pillsbury. Dry conditions are making it tough on crews.
