Press release from the management of the Six Rivers Lightning Complex:
The Six Rivers Lightning Complex remains in unified command with California Interagency Incident Management Team 14, California Highway Patrol, Trinity County Sheriff, and Humboldt County Sheriff. The Six Rivers Lightning Complex is currently 27,635 acres with 80% containment and 1,493personnel assigned to the incident.
For several days a marine layer over the Ammon and Campbell fires increased humidity levels causing lower fire activity. Under these conditions, firefighters have made significant progress on a priority objective of constructing line along Lone Pine Ridge.
Tuesday, the Ammon Fire was held in its current footprint as firefighters continued to secure containment lines. While the northeast corner remains the most active portion of this fire, a spot fire approximately one acre in size crossed the perimeter on the west side in the afternoon. Firefighters worked through the night and fully contained the spot fire by this morning. There was no significant fire progression on the Campbell Fire Tuesday, during which time firefighters worked diligently to strengthen containment lines and extinguish hot spots. The line construction along Lone Pine Ridge also made steady progress, nearly reaching completion.
Fire activity is expected to increase in the coming days as higher temperatures have been forecasted. During this time firefighters will monitor containment lines and remain vigilant to spot fires as they continue with fire suppression efforts. Operational efforts will focus on the northeast portions of each fire, where fire activity is the highest due to steep terrain and heavy dry fuels. Construction will also continue on contingency lines beyond Lone Pine Ridge as a backup to primary lines.
