YREKA, Calif, July, 10, 2021- As of 6 A.M. July 10th, the Tennant Fire has burned 10,580 acres and is 95% contained. The Tennant Fire continues to show minimal fire activity, primarily burning within the 2009 Tennant Fire footprint. Firefighting resources have been assigned to isolate the areas of heat remaining and extinguish them. Due to the current heatwave and critically dry fuels, fire managers are anticipating some flare-ups within the interior of the fire, but they should not pose a threat to the control line. This morning, July 10th, 2021, the Type 2 CA Incident Management Team 15 transferred command of the Tennant Fire back to the Klamath National Forest Type 3 Incident Management Team due to the increase in the containment of the fire. An area of high pressure has produced another heat wave this weekend with near triple-digit temperatures possible. A very dry and unstable air mass has settled over the incident with single digit humidities. Poor overnight humidity recoveries are expected. After morning terrain driven flows, afternoon westerly breezes will materialize and persist through the early evening. Area closures remain in effect for National Forest lands surrounding the Tennant Fire. The cause of the Tennant Fire is under investigation.
