Dodge Fire update
Tuesday, Aug. 11, 2015 — The Dodge Fire, named for the nearby Dodge Reservoir, started at approximately 2 p.m. Monday, Aug. 3. The fire is burning approximately 17 miles northeast of Ravendale, in sagebrush, grass and juniper trees in a remote part of Lassen County. Investigators have confirmed a spark from a tree-harvesting saw was the cause of the fire.
Today fire behavior was minimal. Crews will continue on mop-up 300 feet around the perimeter today and maintain unburned fuel islands. Fire behavior has moderated due to containment efforts and recent weather.
Typical afternoon breezes are expected for the rest of this week with the low-pressure system approaching off the Oregon and California coast.Add a comment
