Fire Returns to the Klamath

After an eerily calm early summer, fire has returned to the Klamath mountains. The McKinney Fire, as of writing this, is one of the largest fires in the United States at 55,493+ acres - with 0% containment. The fire has already torn through the community of Klamath, burning down homes and community buildings, and is now threatening the town of Yreka.

This sort of traumatic fire incident has become all too familiar to Klamath River residents over the last few years. Many friends and families losing their homes and fundamentally changing our small communities.

Take care of yourselves, and make smart choices. You can get updates about the fires in the basin on the Klamath National Forests Twitter feed, linked below.
