Lime Fire in Klamath Nat’l Forest approximately 1,100 acres

KLAMATH NATIONAL FOREST, Calif. – An increase in fires across California means there are limited crews working on the Lime Fire in Siskiyou County.

The fire started during last week’s lightning storm and has burned about 1,100 hundred acres west of Interstate-5, about nine miles north of Yreka.

The fire also prompted an evacuation warning for residents from Ash Creek to Gottsville, to 4 miles north of Highway 96.

A type 2 incident management team has taken control of the fire with 174 personnel in total.

A community meeting was scheduled for Monday night at 6:00 in the Klamath River Community Hall at 19716 Highway 96, Klamath River, California.

The U.S. Forest Services estimates to have the Lime Fire contained by mid-October.
