From the management of the Six Rivers Lightning Complex:


The Lightning Complex Fire is currently 23,159 acres with 23% containment. 2,111 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 no instances of fire spotting outside of the control lines. 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:  Residents in the Seeley Mc Intosh area were allowed to return home yesterday evening. Today crews will continue to strengthen fire lines and limit the spread of the main fire. Portions of Seeley Mc Intosh Road may be closed to allow the removal of hazard tress from areas near the roadway.

Ammon Fire:  Firefighters will conduct strategic fire operations along the southwest perimeter 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.


The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning from 11am to 11pm today for dry lightning and thunderstorms. This activity could produce erratic winds. The risk is greatest along the eastern side of both fires. These storms may form even above areas with thick low-level smoke.


Strong inversion and forecast wind conditions will continue to keep smoke over the area. Please check this link 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 the Caltrans Quickmap to check for state highway closures.
