CONDITIONS

A Red Flag Warning for abundant lightning and thunderstorms has been issued for portions of Northern California including the area of the Eiler Fire. Predicted weather could adversely impact and challenge control lines, we have seen fire activity increase during high temperatures and low humidity. There are many hot spots and flare ups within the fire perimeter in the area of Burney Mountain. These are visible from the surrounding communities, including Burney, Hat Creek, and Old Station, especially at night. Crews are aggressively constructing direct hand line utilizing Minimal Impact Suppression Tactics (MIST) in the Thousand Lakes Wilderness. The forest is open for recreation and woodcutting. “Wildfire is coming, are you ready?” For more information on our Ready Set Go program, go to www.readyforwildfire.org Emergency Workers Are Asking Everyone To Drive With Caution While Traveling Through Fire Affected Areas.
