Press release from Six Rivers National Forest:

Yesterday as of 6:00pm California Interagency Incident Management Team 11, led by Incident Commander Chris Fogle, assumed management of the Six Rivers Complex Incident. This morning, the Six Rivers Lightning Complex Fire is 6,773 acres and is 0% contained.

Crews worked overnight in effort stop fire spread. This is a full suppression fire. Firefighters will aggressively fight fire whenever it is safe to do so. Today crews will continue fire suppression efforts with the objective of keeping the fire west of Lone Pine, south of Horse Linto Creek, east of Brannan Ridge and north of Ammon Ridge.

Last year’s snow event left a lot of trees dead and down on the ground. If ignited, these can result in fire behavior that is more substantial than what would usually be anticipated this time of year.

A community meeting is being held today at 3:00pm at the Willow Creek Bible Church located at: 39 Brannan Mountain Road in Willow Creek. This meeting will be in-person and available online on the Six Rivers National Forest Facebook page.


Today’s weather will be similar to yesterday. The deep inversion resulted in good humidity recovery overnight in the 90% range. Humidity today will drop to 30-40%. Temperatures will be around 80 degrees with higher temperatures in the valleys. General surface winds will be 5-10 mph out of the north and in the afternoon, gusts will be 15 mph.

The inversion and high humidity recovery overnight throughout the day today will moderate fire behavior. The inversion layer is expected to break around 12:00 for the southern fires and around 2:00pm today for the northern fires. Air operations will be possible when the air is clear.
