Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Ca. --The lightning-caused McFarland Fire is approximately 2,100 acres and 5 % contained.

Fire officials at U.S. Forest Service say a Type 2 Incident Management Team will be assuming command of the fire tonight.

Yesterday, firefighters and equipment worked to construct a dozer line on the west side of the fire from Highway 36 south to forest road 29N27.Another dozer line has also been tied in on the east side of the fire from the confluence of the middle fork of Cottonwood Creek to Oliphant Creek. Crews aggressively attacked a spot fire on the northwest end of the fire.

Over night, the fire continued to burn actively, particularly on the south side burning towards the North Fork of Beegum Creek and on the west side backing down McFarland Ridge towards forest road 29N28.

Resources today will continue to scout for areas where they can construct a direct fire line. 

Firefighters are also working to assess structures in the Basin Gulch area, east of the fire, and develop a structure protection plan. While the weather will be moderate today with lower winds, extreme drought conditions still exist.

Forest visitors are reminded that fire restrictions remain in effect prohibiting building, maintaining, attending, or using a fire, campfire, or stove fire. For more information visit: https://www.fs.usda.gov/stnf/
