Parker 2 Fire August 13 UPDATE
Incident: Parker 2 Fire Wildfire

Crews will continue mop up and patrol around the fire perimeter today. Today’s weather is expected to be cooler and cloudier, with westerly-northwesterly winds predicted to gust to 25-30mph on ridgetops. The increased winds may uncover any remaining weaknesses in containment lines and holdover fires. Crews will be prepared to respond if needed.

Fire and Modoc National Forest Staff will continue work replacing the Middle Fork Parker Creek Bridge, which was destroyed by the fire.
