LASSEN COUNTY, Calif. - Fire crews from the Susanville Interagency Fire Center responded to seven fires caused by lightning on Aug. 7.

The crews stopped progression on all seven fires.

The largest fires were Willow Fire and R-1 Fire, both of these were in Lassen County. 

The R-1 Fire was about six miles east of Termo, burned 130 acres and destroyed one unoccupied house and one outbuilding.

Fire crews will be working on both fires for several days, improving fire lines and mopping up hot spots.

Officials at the Susanville Interagency Fire Center said aircraft will be patrolling areas impacted by lightning, watching for smoldering lightning strikes that could erupt into flames as temperatures and winds pick up later throughout Aug. 8.
