The Gap Fire on the Klamath National Forest in northern California is producing lots of smoke that can be clearly seen from satellite.  A temporary smoke monitor has been placed in Yreka, Ca and has been recording high levels of smoke since it was installed.  The fire was reported at 9,820 this morning, the latest information can be found on the fire's inciweb page.

Below is an image of the smoke from the Gap Fire by satellite yesterday afternoon.


  1. Thanks for all of the work that you guys do. Are you planning on any smoke reports for the Gap Fire in the coming days?

  2. Hello Travis, thank you for the complement of our blog. It is my understanding that an Air Resource Advisor (ARA) is expected to arrive at the fire sometime today or tomorrow. Folks in the ARA program are the ones who produce the detailed reports posted to the blog. Check the blog in the near future.
