SEIAD VALLEY, Calif. – The massive effects of the Goff Fire was the topic of a community meeting in Northern California on Monday night. The wildfire burned more than 20,000 acres in August, and threatened homes in Seiad Valley.
Forest managers hosted the forum at the Seiad Valley Fire Hall to talk about the impact on vegetation, water, and wildlife. Crews said rehabilitation work has already begun on the burned areas, but some spots can still pose a danger.
“For instance, there are some areas along the Pacific Crest Trail where we have put signs up for hikers to be careful of hazards of falling trees, and placed where the trail might not be stable anymore,” explained Kerry Greene, a forest manager with the Klamath National Forest.
The meeting was held at the Seiad Valley Fire Hall on Highway 96.
