Fires affecting Lake County : Sulphur, Long, Tubbs, Redwood, and Pocket

The Sulphur fire is Lake County's latest major fire, which affects the Sulphur Bank, Windflower Point, Gooseneck, and Clearlake Park areas, grew to over 2500 acres, and  destroyed 136 residences and 30 other structures. We are also covering the Long Fire (Long and Spring Valley), Tubbs Fire (active on Mount St Helena, potentially affecting Middletown), Redwood Fire (threatening Lake Pilsbury) and the Pocket Fire (near Geyserville). Here are some resources:

  • Tuesday through Saturday, October 17 through 21, the City of Clearlake and the County of Lake will partner with community, State, and national service and relief organizations to provide a one-stop Local Assistance Center (LAC) for those impacted by the Sulphur Fire. Please, rather than going it alone, come and allow this experienced team to walk alongside you. 

    The LAC will be open from 11:00am-7:00pm, at the Clearlake Senior Community Center, located at 3245 Bowers Ave, Clearlake, CA, 95422.
