1999 Kirk Complex Anniversary
Sunday, 8 September 2019
Santa Lucia Mountains - Monterey County
On the night of September 8, 1999, a once-in-a-generation electrical storm pummeled the southern Monterey District of the Los Padres National Forest in the northern Santa Lucia Mountains of Monterey County. The ensuing series of lightning-caused wildfires were not fully contained until the end of October and charred 86,731 acres. The three most prominent fires in the complex were the Hare, Kirk, and Tassajara Fires which experienced interior burning until Winter rains finally fully doused them.
