Smokey Gap Fire Choking Humboldt; Here’s What You Need to Know
We are experiencing a change in wind/weather patterns…that is pushing the smoke from the GAP Fire from up North into the Klamath, Shasta Trinity and Eel River drainages. …[M]ost of the Humboldt Del-Norte Unit is experiencing a lot of smoke in the mountains and drainages.
CAL FIRE wants you know we have had Aircraft up to patrol the areas affected. We encourage calls to 911 when a FIRE or a DISTINCT column of smoke is observed for reporting new incidents. You are welcome to call the PIO number for information on fire status and smoke situation as well at 707-418-0411. I have had calls from Burnt Ranch to Fortuna down to Salmon Creek and just now Zenia so our people are observing it from all areas at the time of this email.
Again for any new incidents call 911. We will update if new incidents are reported. Any information needs call 707-418-0411.
