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 29,815 acres with 80% containment and 1,970 personnel assigned to the incident.

CURRENT SITUATION The low visibility from smoke may have limited the use of aircraft Friday, but the slight drop in temperatures and rise in relative humidity once again helped to dampen fire intensity.

The Ammon Fire is looking better each day. Firefighters check and recheck containment lines as they continue to mop up hot spots, watching for spot fires and rollout. Firefighters working on the Campbell Fire, have made great progress. In steep, rugged terrain with thick vegetation, the objective of preparing for and conducting defensive firing operations continued throughout the day Friday. The major focus for several days has been defensive firing. As the firing continues, the strength of the primary control line ahead of the advancing fire front increases. The firing operations that took place Friday should be considered a win. The progress made was substantial and critical to the success of the Lone Pine Ridge control line.

Although fire intensity was dampened Friday, the main fire front of the Campbell Fire continues to spread toward planned control lines. In anticipation of potential fire spread, firefighters are also working on structure defense preparations south and southeast of the Campbell Fire. These actions are being taken as the fire progresses south, toward areas with no recent fire history.
