      Lightning Continues to Cause Small Wildfires Across The Klamath 

      Incident: Klamath National Forest Lightning Fires Wildfire 

       Of the fires identified so far, 15 are on the Happy Camp/Oak Knoll Ranger District, 11 are on the Scott-Salmon River Ranger District, and four on the Goosenest Ranger District. 
       None seem to be threatening homes or other structures at this time.   Fire managers expect hold-over fires to become visible as the weather front pushes through the area and hotter, dryer conditions return. 
       Though firefighting resources are spread somewhat thin due to the large wildfires on the Salmon River, crews are working hard to catch these lightning starts before they get big.
