710-acre vegetation fire burning in Siskiyou County, 65 percent contained

710-acre vegetation fire burning in Siskiyou County, 65 percent contained

 Fire fighters in Shasta and Siskiyou counties are battling a fire that is currently burning strong in the Siskiyou County area.

What’s being called the Grade Fire is currently burning two miles north of Yreka. The fire has burned more than 700 acres and is approximately 65 percent contained.

One witness caught a glimpse of quite a fire phenomenon. The National Weather Service in Medford, Oregon posted a photo submitted by viewer Bob Smith, showing what they call an “ash devil.” The weather service said, “Firewhirls and ash devils are not uncommon in wildfires on unstable days. Strong updrafts from the heat of the fire (or even just the blackened ground) are able to turn the horizontal vorticity (spin) into the vertical and give rise to these spinning columns of air. These are signs of vertical wind shear and extreme instability, and they are very dangerous to firefighters.”

Meanwhile, evacuation orders that were issued for more than 150 structures that were under threat have since been lifted.

Investigators are still determining the cause of the fire.
