Firefighters working on the Ranch Fire have completed a control line around almost half of the perimeter (see map above). Satellites have not detected very many large sources of heat on the western three-quarters of the incident for a couple of days.
The fire is 21 miles southwest of Red Bluff, California and one mile east of the Mendocino National Forest.
Evacuations are still in effect along Colyear Springs Road from Red Bank Road to the Mendocino National Forest Boundary.
CAL FIRE reports that the fire has burned 2,534 acres, which is a reduction from 3,768 acres due to more accurate mapping.
Resources assigned to the fire include 65 fire engines, 10 water tenders, 36 hand crews, 5 helicopters, and 13 dozers for a total of 1,123 personnel.

Update: CA Wildland 🔥 Deployment
Overnight photos from our crews on the #RanchFire. They are doing well & working hard as they work the fireline. They are working with another Cal Fire strike team as they hold a line at the creek bottom & chase spot fires throughout the night. pic.twitter.com/pyOnVYJehw
