Smoke from wildfires burning in Northern California filled skies in the Klamath Falls area Saturday evening. The largest, the Rush fire, has burned 320,793 acres about 15 miles south of Ravendale, Calif. That fire began burning Aug. 12. Of the three fires making up the Fort Complex in the Klamath National Forest and Rogue River-Siskiyou Forest, the largest continues to burn. The Goff fire is now 7,500 acres and just 15 percent contained. These fires have closed a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail in Northern California. At 6 p.m. the air quality index for Klamath Falls was 95, and at a rating of 101 the air quality index moves into the unhealthy for sensitive groups category.
