CA-KNF-#LightningFires 16 new Klamath National Forest #wildfires less than one acre south end of Scott Valley and throughout Butte Valley. #CaFires

  Klamath National Forest Crews Continue Containing Numerous Lightning Fires

Small  lightning storms hitting the Klamath National Forest brought with them somewhat wetter conditions. 

Lightning strikes were clustered in the south end of Scott Valley and throughout Butte Valley.

One new fire was identified yesterday morning in the Happy Camp area. Fire personnel were able to get on this start early and already have it contained. It is now in patrol status along with more than 40 other lightning fires started over the last week.

There is a slight chance of continued thunder storms this evening.

Although these fires were lightning-caused, many wildfires in California are caused by people; this means they can be prevented. Every preventable wildfire puts firefighters and the public at risk and reduces the response capability of fire departments to respond to the next fire.
