Moderate fire activity and minimal growth on the Poorman Complex     

There was moderate fire activity on the Camp Creek and Donut Fires yesterday due to dry, windy conditions. The fires saw minimal fire growth with most of the activity within the interior of the current fire perimeter.

The Lassen Hotshot crew completed structure preparation near Hot Springs Creek Fire (#463). The fire is located about 36 miles northeast of Ruby.

  • Camp Creek Fire (#352): Current estimated acreage is 50,091. The fire was active to the east and southeast moving into an area burned in 2005. Activity included backing against the wind and creeping and spreading slowly in the area. It is approximately 5 miles north of Poorman Road and crossed Poorman Creek. Baker River Hotshots continue structure preparation around multiple cabins in the Poorman Road area.
  • Donut Fire (#335): Current estimated acreage is 50,288. The fire continues to slowly spread to the north into an area burned in 2015. Fire activity includes slow backing and creeping in the area burning the residual vegetation from previous burn.  
  • Sunset Fire (#369): Current estimated acreage remains at 3,002. This fire is still in monitor status with minimal fire activity expected. The fire ran into natural barriers with a bog on the east side, a creek along the west side, and the Yukon River to the south.
