Joining fires in Orleans and along the Salmon River, the latest blaze (called the Corral Complex) started Saturday morning and grew to 375 acres by this afternoon. Lots of fuels and extreme terrain -- not to mention thinly spread firefighting resources -- are making this fire "problematic," according to Six Rivers National Forest.

Lightning sparked fires east of Hoopa over the weekend, adding to the smoke-congested air along the Trinity, Klamath and Salmon rivers.
