Dramatic Mud Flow Flooding when Bridge Taken Out Yesterday at #McKinneyFire

"Last night we had a bridge give out near Humbug Road within the evacuation zone. The individual inside was a private contractor working the fire and was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries," Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office stated in a press release.

At the time, Siskiyou Alerts posted on Facebook, "four vehicles swept into Humbug creek by flooding near OHV park. All occupants are out except one. They have eyes on him and he is ok at this time. They are working on access to get to him. This is in the area of Yreka Walker Road. Possible that bridge gave out while vehicles were on it."

The incident was discussed at the morning firefighter briefing. The live video of that briefing is found on Yreka News.

McKinney Fire Complex is 57,519 Acres with 0% containment.
