Thunderstorms spark small fires across Lassen National Forest
SUSANVILLE, California (KOLO) - Recent thunderstorms have sparked a number of small, slow moving fires across the Lassen National Forest.
The forest says there are four fires actively burning; the Crater Fire, the Deadhorse Fire, the Christy Fire, and the H-1 Fire. All are 100% contained and controlled.
Firefighters will patrol the area of the fires, checking for heat until they are extinguished.
So far this year, the Lassen National Forest has seen a total of seven lightning caused fires, all within seasonal norms. As of early June, fire danger for the area remains low as fuels are moist.
