The Fort Complex is composed of:
The Goff Fire, 246 acres, in the Klamath National Forest;
The Lick Fire, 174 acres, in the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest;
The Hello/Fruit Fire, 296 acres, also in the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest.
All three fires are in very steep terrain with difficult access. These fires are currently being managed as a complex for both national forests by the Southern California Interagency Incident Management Team One.
Currently hand crews are working on strategic line construction complemented with helicopter water drops and airtankers as needed. Hazardous conditions for firefighters include large burning logs rolling downhill and torching snags. Fires may increase in size in order for firefighters to work safely in defensible areas. Minimum impact fire suppression tactics will be used in the Red Butte Wilderness to keep the landscape as close to pre-fire conditions as possible.
