Posted: Jul 9, 2021 12:50 PM

The Tennant Fire has consumed more than 10,000 acres but has shown minimal activity. On Saturday, July 10, command of the fire will shift back to the Klamath National Forest personnel.

Earlier today, the following information was issued by the US Forest Service.

YREKA, Calif, July 9, 2021- The Tennant Fire continues to show minimal fire activity, with the areas burning being within the 2009 Tennant Fire footprint. Resources have been assigned to isolate the areas of heat and mop them up. With the upcoming heatwave combined with critically dry fuels, it is anticipated that there could be flare-ups within the interior of the fire perimeter, but they should not pose a threat to the control line.

As of 6 A.M. July 9th, the Tennant Fire has burned 10,580 acres and is 91% contained.

On July 10th, 2021, CA Incident Management Team 15 will transfer command of the Tennant Fire back to Klamath National Forest. A Type 3 Incident Management Team will work with the Forest until the Tennant Fire is 100% contained.

A strengthening area of high pressure will yield another heatwave this weekend with near triple-digit temperatures possible. A very dry and unstable air mass will settle across the incident with single-digit humidities. Poor overnight humidity recoveries are expected. After morning terrain-driven flows, afternoon westerly breezes will materialize and persist through the early evening.

Evacuation Warnings are in effect for areas surrounding the Tennant Fire. Up-to-date information regarding evacuations can be viewed at an interactive map managed by the Siskiyou County Office of Emergency Services.

The cause of the Tennant Fire is still under investigation.
