Incident UpdateMcFarland Fire
Date: 08/18/2021 Time: 9:59 PM
The McFarland Fire continued to burn actively today, with most growth seen on the southern side as the fire burned actively into the Yolla Bolly Wilderness. Protection around structures in Platina and into the Beegum Creek area continued as well. Damage assessment teams continue to assess the fire area, and those findings will be released as they are known.
Crews worked directly along the eastern edge of the fire to construct fire lines. While those lines have yet to be tested by winds, much of the eastern edge of the fire now has containment line around it. Containment lines on the northern and northwestern edges of the fire continued to hold well.
The Red Flag Warning has been extended through tomorrow for low relative humidity and Gusty winds which could cause continued growth to the south and southwest.
