On Sept. 12, 2015, the Valley Fire swept through Lake County, burning through 70,000 acres of woodland, killing four people and torching 1,280 structures, including the Carolynn Spezza's home in Middletown. Now, two years into the recovery process, 75-80 percent of the structures that burned have not been rebuilt.

The Espinoza family in Redwood Valley lost two homes to the Redwood Valley fire in October, 2017.  Now seven of them are staying in a one bedroom apartment and even though they are grateful for the place to stay, it can get stressful.  April Dembosky reports.

Rising waters of the Navarro River, fed by days of rain, spilled onto California Route 128 on Monday, forcing the road's closure between Route 1 on the Mendocino coast and Flynn Creek Road at Navarro, the first closing of the rainy season, Caltrans said.

"Route 128 is closed in Mendocino County near Route 1 due to flooding of the Navarro River," Caltrans reported in social media. "It is unknown at this time when the highway will reopen."

Alternate routes to the Mendocino coast are available via Flynn Creek Road or Philo-Greenwood Road. Motorists are advised to use caution.
