Smoke from Lost Lake fire visible in Kingman

A vegetation fire near Parker has prompted evacuations of residents of Lost Lake Resort on the California side of the Colorado River. The fire was listed at 5,900 acres and 44% percent contained as of 8 p.m. Thursday.

The fire, which was ignited May 26 approximately 25 miles north of Blythe, California, is burning in grass, salt cedar and desert brush. Winds and dry fuels contributed to the increase in the acreage burned.
