FRIDAY, AUGUST 21, 11 AM ... The four fires of the Gasquet Complex in Del Norte County have grown from approximately 3,000 acres to over 12,000 acres over the past seven days.
The fires, which were started by lightning three weeks ago, have not damaged structures or closed Highway 199. There have been no evacuations.
Containment has dropped due to spread of the Peak Fire (approximately 4,000 acres).
