High winds on the coast have made for potentially dangerous fire conditions, keeping fire fighters on high alert.
On Monday there were four vegetation fires in Mendocino County, one in Redwood Valley that burned 166 acres and required 4 fire crews and 7 fire engines to put out.
Another fire, 12 miles east of Ukiah, took only 2 fire crews to put out. It burned 1 acre, and one fire fighter suffered a minor shoulder injury while fighting it.
In addition, there were brush fires in Laytonville and Willits.
The Redwood Valley fire was caused by a bulldozer working in a grass land area. A spark from a rock apparently set off the fire.
According to officials at Howard Forest Command Center in Mendocino County, dry conditions as well as winds are creating extremely hazardous fire conditions.
