Yeti and Alex Fires
News - 08/12/2022

Fire
 
Heavy fuels from the Yeti Fire continue to smolder. There is a new, 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 for the SRF Lightning Complex in order to limit fire spread and intensity.

Smoke
 
Smoke from the Yeti Fire as well as the new fire near Scott Bar will impact Happy Camp, Seiad Valley and Klamath River. Hoopa, Weitchpec, and Orleans should expect Unhealthy this afternoon, followed by clearing. Heavy afternoon and evening smoke in Forks of Salmon is expected to clear overnight. Heaviest smoke from the SRF Lightning Complex will continue to impact nearby communities, with Hazardous air quality this afternoon and evening in Willow Creek and much of the day in Burnt Ranch. Expect Unhealthy much of the day in Hyampom and Hayfork. Over the weekend the inversion layer is expected to grow stronger with more smoke lingering in drainages.
