Editor's Note: An earlier version of this story was illustrated by a picture that was used without permission and inadvertently attributed to Mendocino Complex rather than The Mendocino Voice, an online news service that is covering the Mendocino Complex fires. We have replaced the picture on our website and on Facebook, where our report was widely shared. We regret the misunderstanding, and wish The Mendocino Voice the best in its ongoing coverage of this dangerous fire emergency in Lake and Mendocino counties.
