On 10-13-2017 the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office Coroner's Division was able to identify three of the eight persons located thus far who died during the Mendocino Lake Complex Fire which started during the early morning hours of 10-09-2017.

14-year-old Kai Logan Shepard from Redwood Valley was found near his family's home in the 11300 block of West Road in Redwood Valley. Authorities believe he was trying to escape the fire when he was "overtaken by flames", according to a Mendocino County Sheriff's Department statement. The married couple was found in the remains of their home in the 4000 block of Fisher Lake Drive.

"Steep inaccessible terrain coupled with critical fuel moistures, and northwest winds will provide challenges for crews working on the fire", a Cal Fire incident report read Thursday night.
