The 12 503-acre Corral Fire on the Lower Trinity Ranger District of the Six Rivers National Forest remains at 95% contained. The predicted containment date is October 2.
Effective early Friday morning September 27 2013 Forest Order #10-13-06 is rescinded by Six Rivers National Forest Supervisor Tyrone Kelley. This means that the roads and trails that were closed for the Corral Fire will now be open for public access.
A Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) team has been identified for the Corral Fire. The BAER team comprised of hydrology soils geology and botany specialists will determine if a burned-area emergency is present and whether there are potential threats to human life safety property or critical natural or cultural resources exist. If it is determined threats are present emergency stabilization treatments consistent with the land and resource management plan will be proposed for funding to reduce the risks within the first year following containment of the fire.
