May 11, 2006 - Tule Wildfire
A wildfire measuring 8.9 acres was discovered late Thursday afternoon by a U.S. Forest Service firefighter on Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge. Modoc National Forest Battalion Chief Chris Orr located the fire in the southeast area of the refuge. Klamath Basin Battalion Chief Greg Zoppetti responded and together with Orr controlled the blaze. The exact cause has not been identified, but an uncontrolled vegetation burn is the likely culprit. No injuries or serious damage were reported.
