FINAL UPDATE: FRIDAY, SEPT. 13, 11:15 a.m. ... Anticipated warmer, drier weather for the next couple of days has firefighters working to solidify the gains they've made over the past week on the remaining lightning-caused fires around the region. Here's the status of the most significant fires, as of the most recent reports:
Lime fire, in the Klamath National Forest: Barely growing to 1,872 acres, up to 45 percent containment. All evacuation orders have been lifted.
Red Bank fire, in Tehama County, CA.: Holding at 8,838 acres, 95 percent contained.
Gopher fire, in the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest: Holding at 352 acres, up to 20 percent containment.
All these fires seem well in hand. Unless the situation changes, this will be the final report on these three fires.
