    Some confusion about the Beaver Creeks…..
    1. Beaver Creek Fire located down Hwy. 96 just East of the town of Klamath River, about 30 miles west of Hwy 263, which is north of Yreka. Fires are burning to the north of Hwy. 96 in that area. Evacuations are in place for that Beaver Creek Fire.

    2. There is another Beaver Creek, adjacent to the town of Copco, CA. According to Inciweb.org, there is another evacuation from that Beaver Creek to just East of Copco.

    Confusing to say the least…..how about some nifty links to a good map?
