Firefighters continue mopping up the Elk Fire north of Upper Lake in Lake County. The fire is now 90% contained. Command of the fire will transition to the Mendocino National Forest on Tuesday morning (9/8) and crews will continue to mop-up and patrol for hot spots over the next 3-5 days.CAL FIRE and the USFS continue to urge the public to be extremely cautious while working or recreating near dry fuels for the remainder of the fire season. Using equipment, parking in dry grass, mowing, dragging tow chains, and cooking are all avoidable causes of fire. You can learn more by visiting:www.preventwildfireca.org
