Orland,Calif.-- One month ago, the Ranch Fire started near Old Lake County Road to the northeast of Ukiah.

And now, as thousands of firefighters are still struggling to gain containment of the fire complex that has burned more than 451,000 acres, a second base camp is now open at the Glenn County Fairgrounds.

The Mendocino Complex is 83% contained as of this morning.

The fire has destroyed 157 homes and 123 other structures.

Three people have been injured, and one person has died.

According to Cal Fire, firefighters continue to make good progress on the Ranch Fire.

We're seeing the acres go up in part because they're using burn operations to actually help with containment.

Over the weekend, firefighters worked on reinforcing containment lines in the northeastern areas of the fire, as well as continuing mop-up.

Out of this camp here, they'll focus on suppression repair efforts in the northwestern portions of the fire.

The southern is being patrolled and mopped up.

They're still patrolling the River Fire, the other section of the Mendocino Complex area, but they're not seeing any movement or change; it's considered to be 100% contained.

There are still more than 3,000 firefighters on this fire.

The Glenn County basecamp was opened last week in addition to the one in Ukiah, but that doesn't mean the fire is threatening Orland residents.

The fire's perimeter is more than 50 miles away from the city, but it does mean that they are targeting this side of the fire right now in terms of building and reinforcing containment lines.
