UPPER LAKE, Calif. – The High Glade Fire, currently burning on the Upper Lake Ranger District of the Mendocino National Forest, is 305 acres and 70 percent contained.
Full containment is expected by the end of the week. The reduction in acres is due to more complete and accurate mapping of the fire perimeter.
Smoke will still be visible as interior fuels continue to burn.
Visitors are asked to avoid the area due to increased fire traffic. Several roads are closed in the area. Please visit www.fs.usda.gov/mendocino to view Closure Order 08-13-09 for more detailed information.
The High Glade Fire was spotted early Saturday morning. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
This will be the final update unless significant activity occurs.
