[californiadisasters] Kit's "Happy Camp Complex" Update For August 30, 2014

For reasons that elude my understanding, I have not been sharing these posts with my own group but have been sharing them on Fire Bombers group on Facebook. This ends now. Kit over on Airtankers group on Yahoo has authorized me to share his newsy posts which I have been doing albeit on a more limited fashion. Henceforth, I will title these posts "Kit's this or that Update".... just an FYI for you all: 

"The "Happy Camp Complex" has grown by another 13,000 acres over the last 24 hours, Fire continues to burn towards the East threatening the following communities:  Elk Creek, Happy Camp, Hamburg, Kelsey Creek, Scott Bar.       The fire has now burned 57,825 acres with 15% containment.  A strong inversion over the fire almost everyday now has limited airtanker operations until the inversion clears out in the afternoon or evening, smoke from the complex has effected almost all of Northern California at times as well as city's as far away as Boise,ID.  The fire continues to spot and run at times and has now is burning in Tyler Meadows and Middle Creek Meadows.  Crews are trying too take advantage of a short cool spell as well as higher humidity over the next 24 hours before warmer and lower humidity returns.  The "Frying Pan" and "Falkstein" fires in the complex have now burned together."
