Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) has confirmed that the majority of Mendocino County will be affected by a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) that will be implemented today due to red flag fire conditions. 

The County of Mendocino continues to work with PG&E to gain information for the public regarding the event. At this time the majority of Mendocino County will be affected. This information continues to evolve and could change prior to the scheduled event. More information will be available on PG&E’s website 

De-energization will be initiated by PG&E late this afternoon between 4pm and 7pm. The event is estimated to continue through Monday afternoon, October 28.

The scanner said (3:05 pm) the Anderson Valley Fire Department, as well as a full CalFire wildland fire response (ground, air & inmate), were dispatched to a reported vegetation fire below the residence at 720 Salmela Road in Philo.

A first responder on the scene said it was in light fuel, about 60' by 40' and had a slow rate of spread.

It looks like they have a handle on it right away. (That's Navarro, near Doug Johnson's Pottery.)

    Trump needs to take over California. It is being destroyed by liberal politicians and enviromentlists. Drop red tape and regulations and get those lines underground.

      You need to take one of your smart pills, James. Your comment suggests that you have skipped several doses.
