Signs of season's end

The moderate-intensity flames that slowly crept through much of the Gasquet Complex cleared the way for meadows like this one to spring back after the Coon Fire died down. Submitted
 Closure orders rescinded with warning of hazards left behind in burn areas

Closure orders for roads and trails that cut through burned areas of Six Rivers National Forest’s Gasquet Ranger District were lifted at the end of last week, effectively signaling the end of wildfire season in Del Norte County.

Two of four fires ignited by lightning on July 31, the Bear and the Peak, continue to smolder, and a plume of smoke could be seen from the Peak Fire, still occupying a small portion of last weekend’s clear skies.

District Ranger Dave Palmer said that although fire crews have moved out of the area, his staff will continue to monitor these until winter rains set in.
