TRINITY COUNTY, Calif.  - The Red Salmon Complex has burned 143,644 acres. It is now 75% contained.

Sunday afternoon, dry air began to filter in causing some increase in fire activity, according to the U.S. Forest Service. The fire is still backing down toward Plummer Creek and Milk Creek, and east of Dees peak.

Crews said they will monitor existing containment lines and improve lines where possible along Plummer Creek.

Aside from the haze and smoke, we've had beautiful weather in northern California today, and it will be just as nice tomorrow. A storm is coming our way, however, and we'll have very unsettled weather this weekend.
