PLUMAS COUNTY, Calif. - As of 10:00 a.m., Sept. 15, the Walker Fire has reached 53,186 acres and is 67% contained.
The Walker Fire is burning on the Plumas National Forest approximately 11 miles east of the community of Taylorsville, the Forest Service said.
2,058 personnel from different states and agencies are assigned to the fire.
Firefighters monitored containment lines overnight, ensuring fire stayed within the perimeter, and added hose lays on the southeastern edge. Holding crews patrolled the fire and provided structure defense in threatened areas including Murdock Crossing and Frazier Cabin.
A new fire camp located at Four Corners is allowing firefighters quicker access into the eastern portions of the fire but has also increased vehicle and equipment traffic in eastern Plumas County.
Firefighters will continue to strengthen and improve containment lines. Along the southern portion of the fire, near the 10 road and south of Antelope Lake, firefighters plan to continue firing operations to reduce unburned fuel adjacent to containment lines.
