Press release from the unified command of the Six Rivers Lightning Fires:
The Six Rivers Lightning Complex remains in unified command with California Interagency Incident Management Team 15, California Highway Patrol, Trinity County Sheriff, and Humboldt County Sheriff. The Six Rivers Lightning Complex is currently 40,995 acres with 64% containment and 1,521 personnel assigned to the incident.
Wildland firefighters will continue efforts to increase containment on the remaining two fires of the Six Rivers Lightning Complex. The Ammon fire has experience minimal growth over the past week, however, interior smoldering of ground fuels will persist with limited threats to control lines. The Campbell fire also remained within the control lines yesterday.
Today, firefighters will focus efforts on holding and improving the control lines near Cedar Creek on the north end of the fire and above the communities of Trinity Village and Hawkins Bar near the southeastern perimeter.
A National Infrared Operations fixed wing aircraft conducted an overnight flight to identify the remaining pockets of heat across the fire area. Today, ground resources will target those hotspots to limit the potential for future spread. Fire resources will continue tactical patrols due to the steep terrain and abundance of burning dead ground fuel, to lessen the threat of hot material rolling across the mid-slope roads causing spot fires outside of the control lines along all the perimeters.
Most of the current smoke production is being generated from several large, unburned pockets of vegetation well within the perimeter of the Campbell fire. The northeast winds in the early morning may bring smoke into communities West and South of the fire area. The overall decrease in fire behavior should improve air quality in the coming days.
