August Complex Wildfire
News – 9/10/2020

The August Complex fire initially began as 37 different fires on the Mendocino National Forest on August 17, 2020 after a storm that produced thousands of lightning strikes across the region. As numerous fires (Glade, Tatham, and Hull fires) merged with the Doe fire, (currently 471,185 acres at 24 percent contained), the August Complex formed. The August Complex is currently burning in five counties: Glenn County, Mendocino County, Lake County, Tehama County and Trinity County. This storymap provides a recap of the origination of the August Complex, and the history of the fire during the time it was managed by the Southern Area Blue Incident Management Team from August 24 to September 11, 2020. Created by Public Information Officer Katy Hooper and GIS Specialist Paige Gebhardt.
