MODOC COUNTY, Calif. – The Caldwell Fire is nearing full containment, Forest Service officials shared Wednesday. They added that no further updates will be provided for this incident unless an unexpected increase in fire behavior dictates otherwise.

The fire has burned 83,261 acres and is 97% contained. Forest Service officials said the Caldwell Fire burned in an area that has not seen fire in over 40 years, and is now dense with Ponderosa and Lodgepole Pine stands.


The U.S. Forest Service shared Monday morning an updated map of the Caldwell Fire.

The Medicine Lake Recreation Area reopened on Friday, Aug. 7.
