30 Acre Fire Burning Six Miles From Hoopa
“Burning material has been running downhill. It’s extremely steep,” explained Lawrence. “Some rolled onto Six Rivers Forest land.”
Hoopa Tribe and Six Rivers now have formed a unified command with the Hoopa Tribe,” explained Lawrence. “The southern edge of the fire has 15% containment.”
She said that at this time there are two helicopters, two hand crews, three engines, two dozers, and miscellaneous overhead personnel for a total of 75 people working on the fire.
“[The fire’s] not putting out big flames,” Lawrence said. “It is creeping and smoldering. It is not crowning.”
