Hot spots have rekindled in a few areas within the Happy Camp Complex fire. With the coming of triple digit temperatures later this week, it is expected that more smoke will be seen over the 2014 wildfire.

While the weather is forecast to be very hot in the coming days, fire managers do not expect to have challenges from holdover hot spots. Control lines have been “mopped up” to over 300 feet and fire leaving the footprint of the 2014 burn is extremely unlikely. Firefighters are patrolling the fire area daily.
