On Friday, October 2, the district office assumed command of the fires that made up the Fork and the South Complexes. The portion of the Johnson and Pickett Fires that are on the Shasta-Trinity National Forest are also being managed at the district level. Crews are currently patrolling and mopping-up.
Please remember that interior smokes will continue to appear on all fires and may be visible from Hayfork to Hyampom and along various roads. Firefighters will remain patrolling these areas and are taking action on any potential threats to the line. The public is still encouraged to use extreme caution driving, as heavy firefighting traffic and large equipment will remain in the area.
A forest closure order is still in effect for both the South and the Fork Complexes. Ongoing assessments of fire conditions have enabled the reduction of the closure areas. The full Fire Closure Order Number 14-15-07 can be accessed here - http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprd3855017.pdf.
This will be the last update for the South Complex. For additional fire information, please contact the Hayfork Ranger Station at (530) 628-5227.
