The Lightning Complex Fire is currently 21,609 acres with 19% containment. 2,040 personnel are assigned to the incident. USFS, CAIIMT 11 and CAL FIRE continue to work closely together in unified command with a full suppression strategy to protect homes and other structures, communities, crucial infrastructure, and important wildlife habitat.

Fire activity was minimal overnight, with occasional spot fires along the southern edges of the Ammon Fire and southeastern edge of the Campbell fire that firefighters quickly contained and will be monitoring. Crews conducted several successful strategic firing operations overnight and improved control lines using dozers and handlines to remove fuels. All control lines are holding well.

Campbell Fire: Yesterday, the evacuation status in the Willow Creek and the Salyer areas was reduced from evacuation order to evacuation warning. Residents returned to their homes in these areas. Crews will continue to strengthen fire lines and limit the spread of the main fire. Residents in the Seeley Mc Intosh area may also be allowed to return home this evening.

Ammon Fire: Firefighters will conduct strategic fire operations in the southwest of this area along Hayden Road and in Friday Ridge area. Crews will continue to improve and reinforce fire lines along the Six Road of Ammon Ridge and within the Friday Ridge System.


Rising temperatures, lower humidity, and increasing northwest winds are expected to increase fire activity today, especially during the afternoon. Aerial firefighting support will continue to be used.


Smoke and strong inversions will continue to affect the health of those in the area. Please check for air quality resources.


State Routes 299 and 96 are currently open in the Lightning Complex but may be impacted by fire behavior. Travelers are encouraged to visit to check for state highway closures.
