Map of the Ruth Complex: The Lightning Fires Burning in Southern Trinity County
Today, the US Forest Service created a new map of the Ruth Complex–the Dutchman, Secret, and Willie Fires–from information gathered early this morning. We’ve provided it below.
Please give the map a minute to load. Use the + and – symbols to zoom in or out:
Note the spot fire on the eastern flank of the Willie. Also, note the large yellow area to the southeast of the Willie indicating a chemical hazard. At this point, we don’t know what the hazard is or how serious the danger. We’ve requested more information.ops_arch_e_land_20170813_0130_Ruth Complex_SRF000897_0600.pdf
