Antelope Complex Wildfire

By  | 

The complex of fires burning in the Plumas National Forest have destroyed 14,700 acres and is 10% contained. More than 800 fire crews remain on-scene battling the fire.

The fire is located in the Antelope Lake Recreational Area, and the flames are fueled by extremely dry fuels such as mixed conifers and large brush components.

Sunday's forecast calls for hot and dry, with thunder storms predicted on Monday and Tuesday.

Firefighters confirmed that several campgrounds and private property have been save from the flames due to significant protection efforts. No structures have been lost in this fire.

On Sunday, an area closure was secured in a 60-square-mile perimeter around Antelope Lake to ensure public safety.

Full containment is expected on Thursday, July 12th.
