Rehab work is ongoing for Northern California's wildfires, which are mostly contained. However, some Siskiyou County Fires continue to spread rapidly and aggressively.
A series of fires that was sparked by lightning last Monday night in the Klamath National Forest has grown tremendously over the last couple of days, now covering more than 12-Thousand-600 Acres, still with just 10-percent overall containment. The Happy Camp Complex is actually 14 separate fires burning in dense stands of trees.
The "July Lightning Complex" consists of several fires in the Klamath National Forest, and now includes the Man Fire in the Marble Mountains Wilderness. A new survey shows the fires covering about 32-Thousand acres, all in heavy timber on steep terrain with an overall containment of 25-percent.
The Coffee Fire in the Trinity Alps Wilderness at Coffee Creek is still holding at 62-Hundred Acres, with 95 percent containment.
Progress continues on the Beaver Fire 16 miles northwest of Yreka near the Klamath River, which is now 95-percent contained after burning about 32-Thousand-300 Acres of heavy timber. Full containment is expected Friday.
Full containment has been declared for the 32-Thousand-Acre Eiler Fire south of Burney, the 40-Thousand-Acre Bald Fire southeast of Fall River Mills, the 13-Thousand-Acre Day Fire in southern Modoc County, the 35-Thousand-Acre Oregon Gulch Fire straddling the state line in the Copco area, and the 55-Hundred-Acre Little Deer Fire near Macdoel.
