Massive Fires Wreak Havoc on Communities in California’s Far North

FIRES, Forestry & USFS, Ray Haupt


Huge wildfires burning in far Northern California for weeks have not only charred hundreds of square miles of heavily forested mountain landscape but also disrupted lives and livelihoods.

Firefighters have been battling several fire “complexes” in Klamath and Six Rivers national forests in Siskiyou County, about 275 miles north of San Francisco and just south of the Oregon border, that have burned more than 190,000 acres.

The blazes that the U.S. Forest Service considers part of the Eclipse, Salmon-August and Orleans complexes were ignited by lightning in late July and mid-August. The federal agency says 45 firefighters have been injured battling them.

While the fires have not gotten as much attention because they haven’t consumed homes and threatened buildings in more populated areas, they’ve caused suffering in Siskiyou County, one of the state’s most economically depressed areas.

The Eclipse Complex, at 100,000 acres the largest wildfire in the state, has threatened the towns of Happy Camp, Seiad Valley and Horse Creek close to a year after the Gap Fire destroyed homes in the region.

Three years ago, the Happy Camp Complex burned 135,000 acres and actually rekindled the following summer.

The Eclipse Complex is 50 percent contained, and the U.S. Forest Service says the only way it will be fully contained is with significant help from Mother Nature.

“Honestly, the complete containment will probably be when we get a season-ending event, which is significant rain and significant snowfall,” said Joshua Veal, a spokesman for the Klamath National Forest.

There are extensive areas of the burning timberland that the Forest Service does not send firefighters into because the terrain is so steep. Fire officials attempt to confine the blazes by trying to push them toward natural barriers and previously burned areas.

It’s a practice that’s becoming more common in the region. The frequency of major wildfire activity has increased in the last decade, according to Siskiyou County Supervisor Ray Haupt.

“This is becoming an every year or every other year event,” Haupt said last week. Eight of the 12 communities in his district have been under different kinds of evacuation orders in recent weeks.

“It’s a huge disruption to our normal commerce of agriculture and tourism. It pretty much destroys our recreation industry,” Haupt said.

Smoke from the wildfires have led to extremely unhealthy air conditions for many of the county’s communities for weeks.

“These folks have been in smoke all summer long,” Veal said.

The wildfire smoke, which has also come from major blazes in Oregon, Washington, British Columbia and elsewhere in California, has prompted many local residents to leave for weeks at a time — if they can afford to travel.

The official unemployment rate in Siskiyou County, which includes the towns of Mount Shasta, Weed and Yreka as well as dozens of tiny communities like those along the Klamath, currently stands at 6.7 percent, the state says. But Haupt says the rate in some towns in his district is between 40 percent and 60 percent.

While residents face adversity, the officials coordinating the battle against wildfires in the area face their own obstacles — one of the biggest being a fight to get personnel and equipment in the midst of a bad fire season throughout the West and disastrous weather events in the Southeast.

“We have been in very fierce competition for resources,” said Veal, adding that massive wildfires in Oregon and hurricanes in Texas and Florida have pulled away emergency workers.

A total of about 1,500 firefighters are currently working on the three big Siskiyou County blazes, according to federal officials — about 500 each on the Eclipse, Salmon-August and Orleans fires.

“This issue with these megafires has been that there aren’t enough firefighters in the world to be able to put some of these out,” Haupt said. “The terrain is against you, (and) the weather is against you.”

Firefighters got a break from the weather last week, with cooler, wetter conditions settling in and allowing them to work on tasks like retrieving gear and repairing damage done while building fire lines.

Officials recently lifted fire restrictions in Klamath National Forest, now allowing visitors to have campfires. But there are still a number of closures to recreation areas, including some along the Pacific Crest Trail.

Klamath River: Gap Fire update from Ray Haupt 8-29-16

FIRES, Forestry & USFS, Ray Haupt, Siskiyou County

PNP comment:  This info came to me this morning from Ray Haupt, our Siskiyou Co. Supervisor for Dist. 5. — Editor Liz Bowen

Gap Fire

Early reports this morning are saying 5 homes lost last night and  one to two dozen outbuildings. Hamburg and Scott Bar under evacuation advisories, safe for now. The fire jumped the river at the mouth of horse Creek last night around 10pm and reports are a 10 to 40 acre fire on the south side of the river. They did use the Cobra helicopter with the FLUR unit on it last night but don’t have the info downloaded yet. That will tell how much fire we have scattered across the landscape and where it wants to move.

Near as I can tell CAL Fire and FS threw everything at their disposal last night at the fire but according to the Siskiyou Unit Chief they were breaking small fires over the county that was detracting from additional response. I’m talking to leadership in OES, CAL Fire and USFS who seem to be working very well together at this time. I don’t know the source of the smaller fires but is very odd. We are under red flag warnings for low humidity and winds today. The IC Team takes over at 0600 today.

Incidentally, that smoke plume is exceptional given they hit this thing all day with air tankers beginning around 0800. They hit it with everything they had on the ground and still this. This is extreme fire behavior only seen by me a few times in my career. What happened last night reminded me of the 2009 Caribou Fire on the Salmon where that fire moved 6.5 miles in 30 minutes.

Evacuation centers are open for residents of Horse Creek, Hamburg and now Scott Bar under advisory evacuation too. The fire jumped the Klamath River around 10pm last night, Sunday.

I am briefing Doug’s office. (Congressman Doug LaMalfa).

Siskiyou jail tax headed back to voters

Ray Haupt, Siskiyou County

Redding Record Searchllight

July 19, 2016

By Sean Longoria of the Redding Record Searchlight

Siskiyou County voters will be asked a second time in November whether they’ll support higher sales tax in exchange for a new jail.

Supervisors on Monday unanimously approved placing the question to the voters, who just last month rejected a countywide half-cent tax.

That vote required two-thirds approval and failed to garner even half the vote, though the county will instead seek a simple majority through a general tax that would end once a $10 million loan is paid off, supervisors said.

The lower threshold butted against the normally anti-tax sensibilities of supervisors, who said they were making a rare exception because the project is focused on public safety.

“Crime’s not going down in Siskiyou County and quite frankly if there isn’t a place to put anybody it’s going to get worse,” Supervisor Michael Kobseff said, citing Sheriff Jon Lopey’s reports of violent and property increases in the county.

The sales tax is a last-ditch effort of sorts for Siskiyou County, which has been looking for years for ways to pay for the nearly $10 million needed to fully fund the jail. The California Board of State and Community Corrections, which awarded some $27 million for the jail, has given the county until September to commit to building the jail or lose that money, Lopey said.

“If the project is killed, I believe — I predict now and in the future, victimization will increase along with violent and property crimes,” Lopey told the board.

The new jail would nearly double the available bed space in Siskiyou County, from 104 to 180 beds with ability to expand, Lopey has said. The county has already spent about $800,000 on the project to secure land in Yreka and for water and sewer access.

Andy Fusso, founder of the political action committee Siskiyou Forward Movement, opposed the tax and new jail at Monday’s meeting. The county should respect the will of voters in June, he said.

“Jail expansion can’t increase public safety without meaningful action to support thriving communities,” Fusso said. “Programs to address mental health and lack of economic and social hope, those are the ones that need our support. That’s what will stop crime and addiction here in Siskiyou County.”

Lopey said the county is already doing great work on rehabilitation and proposed the existing jail be used as a mental health facility if the new jail is built.

“What we’re doing in Siskiyou County is very, very positive,” he said. “We have this (Community Corrections Partnership), we’re trying to rehabilitate people but we still need the capacity and the incentive to put people in jail, especially the habitual offenders and violent offenders who are just thumbing their nose at the justice system.”

Supervisor Ray Haupt also dismissed the idea that the tax increase — which would coincide with a statewide quarter-cent drop — would send more people into Oregon to shop.

“In this case, a quarter percent sales tax, we’re looking at — if my math is correct — $1.25 on a $500 purchase,” Haupt said. “To think that I’m going to drive to Medford for a buck and quarter may be more of an ideological position rather than one of financial responsibility.”
