TRINITY COUNTY, Calif.  - As of Thursday morning, the Red Salmon Complex has grown to 108,165 acres. Containment has dropped from 29% to 27%.

The upcoming weather system still remains a critical component for firing/burn-out operations in the Red Salmon Complex, fire officials said in a Thursday morning incident report.

Burn-out operations are utilizing drones to assist crews with ignition efforts in the Knownothing Creek and adjacent drainage area. The drones are able to access lower drainage expanses in steep and rugged terrain.

The southeast area of the fire near Grizzly Camp over to Lone Pine Ridge has been prepped for firing operations when weather conditions improve, according to officials. The fire continues to be active in both the northeast and the southwest. Other areas of the fire continue to have low-intensity burning.


EVACUATION WARNING

  • Siskiyou County:
    • All of Forks of the Salmon.

On Monday, Sept. 14, the US Forest Service’s Pacific Southwest Region extended the temporary closure of all National Forests in California until at least Sept 21.
