From the command 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 28,904 acres with 80% containment and 1,843 personnel assigned to the incident.


With forecasted weather predicting hot and dry conditions Thursday, firefighters were prepared for high or extreme fire activity. As the day went on, the heavy smoke from the fire reduced the preheating of vegetation and kept the humidity higher. As a result, fire activity remained low to moderate for another day.

The Ammon Fire experienced another spot fire across the line Thursday morning, near its southeast corner. The spot was recognized early and contained. The possibility for spot fires remains a threat, so firefighters continue to monitor and improve containment lines.

The Campbell Fire is the most active of the two fires. There, firefighters are strengthening containment lines, preparing control lines, establishing contingency lines, and conducting defensive firing operations. The fire is burning in areas with no recent fire history with significant dead and down trees. The potential for significant fire activity is a concern, so the priority is to complete the primary control line along Lone Pine Ridge and contingency line along Tish Tang Ridge.

Thursday night, weather conditions remained favorable for the defensive firing operations. The sections of control line that were fired from saw good consumption of fuels which creates a wide buffer ahead of the main fire front. Moving into Friday, there is no predicted weather that would restrict the ability to continue with defensive firing.
