Yeti and Alex Fires AM Update August 9, 2022

Yeti and Alex Fires
News - 08/09/2022

Yeti: Overnight patrols encountered no issues throughout the fire’s perimeter and containment on the Yeti Fire has increased to 78% with acres at 7,886. Today, crews will continue to mop up any remaining heat sources they can access safely with a major focus in the Four Corners area along the fire’s southern edge. Some pockets of heat remain along the Klamath River as well as large, heavy logs and jackpots of fuel that continue to smolder and produce smoke.

Suppression repair has begun in some areas as crews work to minimize the impact of dozer lines by installing water bars to limit erosion and return the areas to as close to a natural state as possible. 
A Forest Closure remains in place for public safety.  
Alex: Firefighters continued to mop up. There still are areas of unburned fuels within the fire perimeter, and a crew remains assigned to this fire to monitor any possible threats to the line.
Weather: Conditions remain hot and dry with light winds over the entire area. 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:  Evacuations warnings remain in effect in the fire area. For information on evacuations, please visit To sign up for alerts, including critical evacuation information, please visit
