SISKIYOU COUNTY, Calif. - Fire crews are still working to contain the “Klamathon Fire” are making good progress.

“We are now expecting full containment by July 15.”

But now the focus shifts towards looking at the damaged areas and rebuilding infrastructures in the area mainly water and power.

In terms of power, Pacific Power that manages the lines in the area are hard at work repairing lines and polls that were damaged in the fire.

Crews on scene tell Spencer Joseph that work is nearing completion and that they have restored all homes in the area with power.

But above all one of the main concerns is water which has been turned off for a lot of the residents.

Water in the area comes from two different sources well water and domestic water.

“There was an issue with domestic water they were saying a possible contamination with domestic water right now there isn't an exact timeline for when that domestic source of water will be repaired.”

But in terms of well water when allowed back into the area residents with that source should be able to use their water safely.

“So well water is okay as long as what they are telling people to do is run your sink or your garden hose for a little bit before you start drinking your well water, just so it clears that water out of the lines if there is any.”

A fire weather watch has been issued from 1pm Monday to 11am Wednesday in the Valley and foothills due to dry and gusty conditions. We'll warm up next week but next weekend is looking much much cooler and wet.
