Fires in the #JulyModocComplex were very active today as temperatures warmed and vegetation dried. The Cove Fire grew this afternoon to an estimated 1,100 acres. The fire is growing toward the northeast. It is currently not directly threatening any structures, but residents in Stone Cold Valley were issued a pre-evacuation by the Modoc County Sheriff today as a precautionary measure. The Cove Fire may also impact some roads, and staff is in place to initiate closures, should they become necessary. Firefighters on the Cove Fire were supported by aircraft, including the VLAT (Very Large Air Tankers), Super Scoopers, and multiple smaller fixed-wing airplanes and helicopters.
