Press release from the unified command of the Six Rivers Lightning Complex:
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 41, 406 acres with 79% containment and 1,229 personnel assigned to the incident. (Ammon – 11,465 acres; Campbell – 29,941 acres)
After five weeks of hard work, our night shift Firefighters worked their last night shift yesterday evening.
Record-breaking heat is possible today, as high temperatures soar into the 100’s at the lower elevations. At the higher elevations of the fire, the temperatures are expected to be well into the 90’s. Accompanying the hot temperatures is a very dry airmass and breezy northwesterly winds. Firefighters have been focusing on bolstering control lines and “mopping-up” identified areas of heat along the eastern portion of the Campbell Fire’s perimeter. In preparation for this critical weather, heavy equipment has been improving the contingency lines along the Lone Pine Ridge as a back-up control line if it was needed. The 2015 River Complex is directly east of the current control lines. There are reduced fuel loads in this relatively recent burned area, which increases the probability of success for suppressing any spot fires which may occur. Firefighters will continue to patrol and monitor the Ammon fire, while wildfire crews continue repair on roads and suppression lines utilizing heavy equipment.
The higher wind speeds will increase mixing of air today, causing more smoke to be transported from the area. Additionally, the morning inversion will lift early today and improve overall air quality throughout mid-day.
