As per a Nixle alert issued by the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office, all residents displaced by the Hopkins Fire are welcome to return home as all evacuations orders and warnings have been lifted.
Evacuations orders and warnings were initiated this Sunday, September 12 after the blaze rapidly consumed homes and wildland in Calpella running eastward all the way to the shores of the drought-stricken Lake Mendocino.

Also, North Coast Opportunities has established a robust network of supports for individuals and families impacted by the Hopkins Fire. Individuals are encouraged to apply through their website and a Disaster Case Manager will contact survivors to meet their needs.
