Happy Camp - An update on the Happy Camp Complex Fire in Klamath National Forest.
The huge fire has now burned over 64,000 acres and is still only 15% contained. An inversion layer is retaining smoke along Highway 96 and pilot vehicles are ushering traffic through impacted areas. Motorists should expect delays.
Because of the large amounts of smoke, air tankers and helicopters are being restricted in some areas. Air quality is also a significant issue. In the southeast, there have been complete “white out” conditions. A clean air respite center is set up in the Karuk Senior Nutritional Center in Happy Camp.
