This report contains the results of a one and a half week assessment of fire behavior, vegetation and fuel loading, consumption, and fire effects for the Beaver Fire. The Beaver fire started by lightning on July 30th, 2014 at approximately 1700. The fire started 16 miles northwest of Yreka, CA, between the upper reaches of Beaver Creek and Christmas tree ridge. Over the course of the next week, the fire grew in size along both the east and west sides of Beaver creek, but was held along the north at Christmas tree ridge and to the south at Highway 96. Fuels plots and fire behavior equipment were installed at 10 locations in the vicinity of the Beaver fire, eight of which were burned by the fire. FBAT installed plots between August 7th and 11th. Fire growth was low between August 6th and 9th, but on August 10th the fire growth was significant. Over half of the plots burned on this day.
