Crews Work To Contain Wildfire Burning In A Remote Area Of Tehama County

Crews are hopeful that they’ll soon have containment on a wildfire in the Lassen National Forest. The Graham Fire is north of Cohasset near Wildcat Creek in a remote area of Tehama County. Because it’s in the Ishi Wilderness, special clearance is needed to use mechanical equpment such as chain saws and to fly in retardant and smokejumpers. Retardant drops have been made and smokejumpers have been working on containment, and are joined by 7 handcrews, 7 helicopters, 12 engines and a bulldozer. As of Monday morning the fire was estimated at 177 acres burning in shrub, brush and timber in steep terrain. Containment is at 30%.
