Six Rivers Lightning Complex
September 10, 2022 UPDATE
Fire Information Line: (707) 356-9442

The Six Rivers Lightning Complex is currently 41,540 acres with 89% containment and 850 personnel assigned to the incident. Ammon – 11,465 acres; Campbell – 30,075 acres.

Yesterday, the extreme heat peaked across the fire area yesterday, with a high of 1070 at 5:00 pm. Fire crews observed minimal fire activity that occurred on both the Ammon and Campbell fires. The only area that is still has significant fire activity is the approximately 60-acre pocket of unburned vegetation within the Campbell Fire near Horse Ridge. This burning remains well within the control lines and poses very little threat to containment. Shifting winds, later today, will test the northern perimeter where fire activity is still present, but crews remain confident that containment will hold and continue to increase.

An anticipated weather pattern change will begin today with a cooling trend which will provide improved fire weather conditions. Firefighters will advantage of the more favorable conditions as they continue to extinguish the remaining hot areas that can be safely accessed. Crews will continue to clear hazard trees from the roadways and implement the suppression repair plan.

Air quality should continually increase as fire activity declines. You can monitor the air conditions in your area at the AirNow Fire and Smoke Map -
