Lakeside, CA -

Lakeside OES 305 was mobilized early this morning as part of an OES strike team headed to the River Complex near the communities of Dailey Ranch, Hoboken and Denny in Northern California. The River Complex is managing a total of five (5) fires due to the fires merging together from the Shasta-Trinity and Six Rivers National forests. 7,059 acres have been involved and mandatory evacuations are in effect. The initial fire was started by lightning on July 30th.
