August 9, 2022 | Humboldt OES Six Rivers Lightning Complex Fire Response Daily Update

Six Rivers Lightning Complex Fire UPDATE (3)

Evacuation warnings and orders remain in effect for areas north, east and south of Willow Creek as fire crews work to contain the Six Rivers Lightning Complex Fire. 


CURRENT SITUATION

The Six Rivers Lightning Complex Fire is made up of numerous active fires around the Willow Creek area. The fires are burning in areas of steep terrain and dry conditions. The incident response is being managed by the United States Forest Service (USFS) - Six Rivers National Forest, in unified command with CAL FIRE, Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, Trinity County Sheriff’s Office and the California Highway Patrol. 


According to the USFS, the Six Rivers Lightning Complex Fire has surpassed 8,000 acres with zero containment. Thanks to the hard work of many firefighter personnel, no structures have been lost. Personnel are working to find areas to fight fire directly while continuing to provide community defense for Willow Creek, Seely Mcintosh, and other areas along the Trinity River.


Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies continue to patrol the areas under evacuation order to notify residents of the order and conduct looting prevention.


As this incident is now under unified command, future daily information updates will be issued in conjunction with the United States Forest Service (USFS) - Six Rivers National Forest, via Incident Management Team 11. To sign up to receive these information updates directly, email 2022.lightningcomplex@firenet.gov
