Sunday Morning Creek Fire Update as it Burns to 45,500 Acres, 207 People Safely Evacuated

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/06/2020 01:28 PM
Shaver Lake, CA...We spoke with CAL-FIRE TCU earlier this morning and asked if the smoke in our area is from the Creek or Slink Fires? We were told it was probably a mixture of both. The Creek however is burning in area with heavier fuels with a higher smoke output level. We have included a thermal map below. These can be inaccurate at times, but on fast moving campaign style fires they can be more accurate in the early stages. The latest on the Creek Fire from the USFS & CAL-FIRE..."The Creek Fire a fast-moving fire burning on both Districts of the Forest. The fire which started near the communities of Big Creek and Huntington Lake, moved very quickly prompting several evacuations.  Early Saturday afternoon the fire crossed the San Joaquin River and made a run into the Mammoth Pool area. Prompting some members of the public to shelter in place near Wagner’s Store and Campground. With assistance of the California Army National Guard, 207 people were safely evacuated and have been assessed for medical needs.
