News - 08/13/2022

 Fire

Heavy fuels from the Yeti Fire continue to smolder. There is an active fire near Scott Bar. With hotter, drier weather the fires in the SRF Lightning Complex are expected to be more active today. As conditions allow, firing operations are planned to continue for the SRF Lightning Complex, in order to limit fire spread and intensity.

Smoke

Smoke from the Yeti Fire and the fire near Scott Bar will impact Happy Camp, Seiad Valley and Klamath River. Hoopa, Weitchpec, and Orleans should expect a period of Unhealthy around noon, followed by clearing. Afternoon smoke in Forks of Salmon should clear by evening. Heaviest smoke from the SRF Lightning Complex will continue to impact nearby communities, with Very Unhealthy this afternoon and evening in Willow Creek. Winds from the north and northwest are expected to bring Unhealthy to Hazardous in Burnt Ranch, Hyampom and Hayfork. The inversion layer is expected to grow stronger with more smoke lingering in drainages today and tomorrow.
