There were 119 new lightning strikes recorded in Northern California in the past 24 hours. The SHF (2 fires) and KNF (1 fire) are reporting new fires. All fires are less than 0.25 acres and are staffed. There are no new fires reported on SRA lands.
On Saturday July 20th, Nick Powell, Fire Engine Operator on the Shasta Lake Ranger District, Shasta-Trinity National Forest, was involved in a non-work related motorcycle accident. It is with great sadness to report that on July 24th, Nick succumbed to his injuries at Mercy Hospital in Redding with his family at his side. The date for Nick's services has yet to be determined.
On July 25, 2008, Andrew J. Palmer, from the Olympic National Park, lost his life in a tree falling accident while assigned to the Eagle Fire, Shasta-Trinity National Forest. We will always remember him in the fire community.
