CONDITIONS

The Humboldt Complex currently consists of 3 fires ranging in size from 203 to 1,774 acres. The overall acreage burned on the Humboldt Complex is a total of 4,883 acres. Currently, no additional fire growth is anticipated. Fire suppression repair has begun on the Pine Fire and is ongoing on the Steelhead, Wildcat, Dobbyn, Bluford, Blocksburg and Winchester fires.Fires are burning in steep, rugged terrain with poor access and heavy timber fuels. Fires threaten Mount Lassic Wilderness, as well as commercial timberland. Much of the timberland is owned by small timberland and rangeland owners who rely on timber and range revenue for a steady source of income. Fires threaten habitat for threatened and endangered species.There are several fires burning near the Humboldt Complex in United States Forest Service jurisdiction, including in the Shasta/Trinity National Forest. CAL FIRE is coordinating with the USFS to implement control lines on some of these fires, and additional heavy equipment is in the area. For information on the USFS fires contact: 530-628-0039.
