There was a meeting in Laytonville yesterday to provide the community with information about the Lodge Complex fires The fire has burned 3,400 acres. There are 966 people assigned to the fire. The estimated costs to date for firefighting have reached $3.9 million.
Air quality in inland Mendocino County remains “moderate;” caused by the Lodge Lightning Complex fires. Which means there may be a moderate health concern for a small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution. People with respiratory or heart disease, the elderly and children are most at risk. Unusually sensitive people should consider reducing prolonged or heavy exertion.
