Yeti and Alex Fires
News - 08/11/2022

Yeti: Active overnight patrols throughout the fire area met no issues and the Yeti Fire remains 78% contained at 7,886 acres. 
Firefighters are working to mop up what little heat remains near the line – primarily along the southern edge where Joe Miles Ridge Road was used as a fireline. Elsewhere, crews continue to monitor for any lingering heat that might threaten containment, but most heat sources detected by infrared flights are well interior. 
Suppression repair has begun in areas where firefighters were building contingency lines. Personnel and heavy equipment will work to minimize the impact of dozer lines by installing water bars to limit erosion. 
An emergency area closure remains in place for public safety. 
Alex: Firefighters continued to mop up and monitor any possible threats to the line.  
Weather: Conditions remain warm and dry with moderately gusty winds forecast for the afternoon. With no rain for the past 30 days and extremely dry vegetation, the danger of new fires remains high. Residents and visitors are asked to use caution, remain vigilant and report any wildfires to the appropriate emergency authorities. 
Evacuations and closures: Evacuation warnings remain in effect for the fire area. For information on evacuations, please visit To sign up for alerts, including critical evacuation information, please visit  
Highway 96 remains closed because of the McKinney Fire.  
Fire restrictions and an emergency fire area closure are in effect on the Klamath National Forest. For more information, visit
