Carr Fire (Shasta County,Trinity County) Started 7/23/2018, updated 8/20/2018

State - California - CALFIRE - Mon, 08/20/2018 - 20:06
Heavy smoke over the area has continued to significantly reduced fire activity. Fire spread remains fuels and topography driven with high potential for roll out and spot fires. Heavy timber fuels still challenge firefighting efforts. Battling terrain driven winds in proximity of the lake have complicated the predictability of this activity. The fire continues to burn actively within containment lines. Residents and the public are able to travel along State Route 299, however, they are asked to drive safely as fire crews and emergency personnel are still working in the area.

Air Quality - August 20, 2018 (Cougar Creek Fire Wildfire)

Wildland Fire Incidents - Mon, 08/20/2018 - 15:58
Fire - Red Flag warning today and tonight due to low relative humidity and gusty east-northeast winds. Winds will increase today after inversion lift. This should aid in clearing heavy, pooled smoke in the lower valleys and provide good visibility for air operations. The combination of gusty winds and dry conditions will also lead to more active fire behavior today. Smoke - Increasing winds today from a recent cold front passage. Winds will clear out much of the smoke in the forecast area but there will still be lingering smoke throughout the day. More active fire behavior on local fires could produce more smoke in communities closest to the fires. Smoke will settle back into the valleys in the evening but not as thick as yesterday. Overall air quality will improve for all forecast areas today and tomorrow. Other - An "Air Quality Alert" has been posted for the forecast area. Unhealthy air will be common in all forecast areas. Under these air quality conditions, children,...
