LLVFDS Update for Aug. 4

Structure protection continues with LLVFD particularly in the lower valley area with grass fires.

The wind is gusting from the north which is creating concern regarding the fire’s direction. We understand that fire activity has increased significantly in the Back Valley area and north of Hat Creek. We understand that Hat Creek has been evacuated now.

The controlled burn at the east end of the lake appears to be on hold while the unfavourable winds are occurring.

Wildfire Protection continues to have extensive resources in the area.

The concern now is whether this change in the wind pattern creates problems over the next 48 hours. So far everything is stable.
