A red-flag warning was in effect yesterday for the Klamath Basin, Fremont-Winema National Forest, Southern Oregon Cascades, and Siskiyou and Modoc counties as the Beaver Complex fire on the Southern Oregon border rages on.
The fire, which has already burned over 36,000 acres, is currently only 35% contained and has resulted in a Level 2 evacuation in Klamath River Canyon from John C. Boyle Dam to the California border. Six homes have been destroyed thus far, and 1,720 firefighters are currently assigned to the blaze.
Despite the heat of the week so far and an expected change in the winds later this week, the weather outlook for the future is hopeful: Following Tuesday night, no more lightning storms are expected for some time.
