Yeti & Alex Fires - Update 8/3/22 AM

Yeti and Alex Fires Wildfire
News – 8/3/2022

Please join us for a Public Meeting at 8pm TONIGHT at the Happy Camp High School Gymnasium, 234 Indian Creek Road, in Happy Camp.

Yeti: Cooler temperatures moderated fire activity overnight. Crews worked overnight to successfully catch yesterday’s observed spots on the east side of the ridge south of China Mountain and continued to strengthen the line that moves toward China Point. The fire continued to back slowly toward the river, and crews were on hand to make sure it didn’t cross.

Today’s warmer, drier conditions may bring an increase in fire behavior, and crews will continue to strengthen containment lines in anticipation of that change.

The Yeti Fire is very visible from Highway 96 west of Portuguese Creek. Motorists are advised to drive slowly and be aware of firefighters and equipment on the road.

Alex: The Alex Fire showed an increase in behavior yesterday as thunder cells moved over the area. Crews have containment line around most of the fire, and they will continue to strengthen that today.
