Bald Fire burning near Hat Creek Rim

The Bald Fire is actively burning near the PCT towards the northern end of the Hat Creek Rim.

The fire is burning on Bald Mountain, located within the Hat Creek Ranger District in a remote area of the Lassen National Forest. This area has had no recent fire history, and heavy brush along with steep terrain are hampering firefighting efforts. Indirect lines are being set up to contain the blaze. The fire has extreme potential for spread.
