Eureka Fire FINAL Update

October 26, 2017

Location: West of Johnsville near McRae Meadow

Start Date: September 5, 2017

Cause: Lightning

Current Size: 450 acres

Planned Area: 450 acres

Containment: 100 percent

The lightning caused Eureka Fire is now 100 percent contained after receiving significant precipitation last week. The fire has been burning on the Plumas National Forest since September 5 and is being managed under a “Confine and Contain” suppression strategy. Firefighters will continue to patrol containment lines and monitor any fire activity until the fire is determined to be ‘out’. Smoke may be visible as interior pockets of unburned vegetation continue to smolder and burn deep within containment lines. This will be the final update unless significant events occur.
