McKinney Fire Assistance Center Will Close Thursday

A local assistance center to serve fire survivors will be open at College of the Siskiyous in Yreka for one more day Thursday. Excellent progress has been made along the perimeter of the McKinney Fire, still 95% contained after burning 60,400 acres. At least 185 structures were destroyed, including at least 87 homes. Four people were known to have been killed by the fire. 11 firefighters and civilians have been injured. Residents who live along Highway 96 can access their property but all other roads within the fire footprint remain closed. The Klamath National Forest closure is still in effect.

— The 7,900 acre Yeti Fire Complex is still 90% contained. 3 firefighters were injured on that blaze.

Patrols and lookouts are watching for new smoke columns after a thunderstorm moved over the area. Four small lightning starts on the Salmon/Scott River Ranger District southwest of Scott Bar total less than an acre. The Hamburg Fire northwest of Horse Creek is 2 acres. There are another three fires near Pyramid Peak.
