As of 08-25-2009, there is an active fire with smoke visible from Yreka. It was a prescribed Forest Service burn that got away and is now, as told by NFS, about 300 acres. Just some info. for those considering Red Buttes.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
