—McKinney Fire—

McKinney Fire Behavior Prediction:


McKinney Infrared Surveillance Cards:

Shaded areas Yellow are where the fire cools. Red at white perimeter lines represent approximately 12 hours of growth during the last charting period from 08/02 10:30 a.m. to 08/02 10:30 p.m. Shaded areas RED are the places where the fire is most active. BLACK the lines are bulldozer lines that may or may not have been completed. Shaded area BLUE is beaver fire 2014

Looking northeast from the west side of the fire in Divisions A and D. Growth throughout the fire has been contained by recent rainfall and increased humidity. As things begin to dry out, increased fire behavior is expected.

Looking north on Highway 96 from the northwest side of the fire in P and R Divisions. red dots and red fill within the perimeter of the fire show isolated heat in unburned interior pockets, primarily along the south and east sides of the Klamath River. The flashy combustibles in the Beaver Fire footprint in 2014 continue to produce periods of growth.

Looking south towards Yreka. No more interior heat pockets. bulldozer line in BLACK appears to be nearing completion except for a short but steep section that connects it to Humbug Creek near the Klamath River.

Looking northeast on Indian Creek Baldy. The fire made a brief run into the scarce fuel available on the northwest side of Indian Creek Baldy. Ridge Top bulldozer lines in BLACK.

Looking west over the Klamath River on the west side of the fire. The fire continues to retreat and flank toward the Klamath River and Highway 96. No spots across the river in Slater’s 2020 fire footprint at time of mapping.

Looking south, there was little growth at the northern end of the fire.
