The Hat Creek Ranger District has five fires. The biggest one is near the Thousand Lakes Wilderness, is 1.2 acres in size and has a fire line around it. Firefighters are currently working to contain two smaller fires on the Hat Creek District and an additional two have been contained. Fire managers on the LNF anticipate additional fires will be discovered in the coming days because of the high number of strikes that were received across the forest.
"We are using lookouts, patrols, and aerial detection to identify any others still out there," said LNF Forest Supervisor Deb Bumpus. "Local crews remain engaged on all fires and continue to progress toward containment and control.”
