      Boulder Complex Fires
      As of 7/2/2006 17:18, the entire area including: roads, trails, and
      campgrounds are closed for an approximate 6 mile radius around Antelope
      Lake in northeastern California. The lake surface is also closed.
      Reservations at Antelope Lake campgrounds have been cancelled through
      July 6; call ReserveAmerica for details. Closure will last indefinitely.

      As of 7/2/2006, 12:18:
      The Boulder Fire, located along the northern shore of Antelope Lake, is
      the largest fire in the 3200 acre Boulder Complex on the Plumas National
      Forest in northeastern California. Containment is now projected for late
      Tuesday, July 4 and control on Saturday, July 8. Firefighters will
      continue burnout operations today to secure the southeastern end of the
      fire. The fire is burning slowly towards control lines, consuming light
      fuels located between the main blaze and the road. A column of smoke
      from the burnout was visible from Janesville and along Highway 395
      throughout the day yesterday. Light ash also fell in some areas due to
      prevailing weather influences. Small spot fires ¼ mile ahead of the main
      fire are being picked up regularly. Sawyers are cutting down dead trees
      that are likely to fall across roads to make the area safer for fire
      fighters to complete the fire suppression work.

      Two additional small lightning-caused fires were detected yesterday
      within the complex. Smokejumpers were dispatched from Redding to stop
      the fires, with assistance from helicopters and engine crews. Fire
      fighters continued to work to suppress burning material within the
      Hungry and Sage fires, also in the complex, which have been contained
      within fire lines.

      The Fire Emergency Area Closure remains in effect for approximately a 6
      mile radius around Antelope Lake. All National Forest lands, roads and
      trails within the Boulder Complex are closed to public access. This
      closure is necessary to protect public safety from the hazards of
      uncontrolled wild fire, including burned and unstable trees, heavy fire
      traffic on narrow roads and obscured visibility due to smoke.
      Campgrounds around Antelope Lake remain closed indefinitely.

      Residents and visitors can find information about the Boulder Complex,
      including maps of the fire and the Antelope Lake Area Closure, at
      bulletin boards located at gas stations, post offices or stores in
      Taylorsville, Greenville, Susanville, Janesville, Doyle, and Milford.
      Fire Information Officers will be visiting those locations throughout
      the day to provide updates about the current status of the fire and to
      answer questions.
      About 638 people are fighting the fires today, including 17
      twenty-person handcrews; 21 fire engines; 2 dozers; 11 water tenders;
      and 4 helicopters. One fire fighter was treated for minor smoke related
      injuries.

      All other fires on the Plumas National Forest are contained including 3
      new ones, located near the Lucky S mine, North Arm of Indian Valley and
      in the Bucks Lake Wilderness.
