TUESDAY NIGHT’S THUNDERSTORM SPARKS

NEW FIRES IN KLAMATH COUNTY

 

Lakeview, Ore – Throughout south central Oregon, over 500 lightning strikes were detected in Klamath and Lake Counties from thunderstorm activity Tuesday evening. As a result, interagency firefighting crews are currently suppressing 20 fires in Klamath County on lands managed by the Oregon Department of Forestry and Fremont-Winema National Forest.

 

A reconnaissance airplane and firefighters on the ground will continue to search for and report additional new fires throughout the day. Some areas of the Forest are receiving light rain, which is assisting with fire suppression efforts.
