Cooler Wet Weather Helps Crews Battling California’s Large Wildfires

Rain has extinguished almost all of the wildfires that had been burning in the North State, but the state’s largest fire of the year still burns. Crews are going to great lengths to prevent erosion as flash flooding and debris flows are now the primary concern.

The Mountain Fire west of Gazelle is 100% contained after burning 13,440 acres. All evacuations have been lifted. Two structures were destroyed and 2 firefighters have been injured. Cal-Fire is still seeking help identifying what started the fire September 2nd, with a tip line at 842-1022.

Repairs are now almost as daunting as firefighting was on the extremely steep and rugged terrain burned by the Six Rivers Lightning Complex in the Willow Creek area. The fires burned 41,560 acres.

The Mosquito Fire in Placer and El Dorado Counties has not grown in a few days, still at 76,290 acres and 47% contained. 78 structures have been destroyed. Most evacuations have been lifted.
