Scanner traffic beginning around 11:00 p.m. indicated dispatch had received reports of a commercial structure fire at 1101 South Dora Street.

The reporting party said the roof of the NorCal Dermatology Building was smoking and on fire.

The Incident Commander reported it is a “working structure fire, well-involved.”

UPDATE 11:19 p.m.: The Incident Commander reported firefighters would be transitioning into defensive mode, used when conditions prevent entry into the interior of a building and consist of protecting structures and people near the incident.

UPDATE 11:30 p.m.: The Incident Commander informed all firefighters at the scene that a power line is down in the area of the fire scene. He also made note there are most likely oxygen tanks in the structure.

UPDATE 5/20/2022 7:45 p.m.: A video of the fire was sent to us by a Ukiah Resident.

Please remember that this story is unfolding. Information is being reported as we gather it. However, some of the information coming from witnesses and initial official reports could be wrong. We will do our best to get the facts but, in the case that something is inaccurate, we will update with correct information as soon as we can.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
