ALTURAS, Calif. - The Cold Springs Fire has now burned for 18 days and is currently 84,817 acres with 94% containment.

The  Cold Springs Fire Area Closure was lifted on Friday, Sept. 4, 2020, opening Blue Lake and the southern end of the Warner Mountains again to recreation.

The threat of fire spread beyond the existing fire perimeter is expected to be minimal. Resources are looking for opportunities to build direct handline to reduce the impact on Sage Grouse habitat, according to Forest Service officials. 

The Cold Springs Fire started on Aug. 18 due to lightning and is burning about 11 miles east of the California community of Madeline in Lassen County along Clarks Valley Road.
