NORTHERN CALIFORNIA - The River Complex has increased to 50% containment as it has burned 195,779 acres, according to the U.S. Forest Service. 

The Haypress and Summer fires, which burned together, have burned 189,839 acres.

There was visible smoke Sunday south of Callahan as crews continue to mop up and reinforce containment lines. 

In the area of Craggy Peak, there are sections of unburned fuels but are in steep terrain. Crews are determining the best way to approach this area and build lines. 

The Tango Blue spot fire showed little growth on Sunday.

The Limestone Ridge area will more than likely see more fire activity but is not anticipated to be a concern.

Follow the Trinity County Sheriff's Office for evacuations in Trinity County.

It's a warmer and windier day for our area in the wake of the storm from this weekend. A Red Flag Warning continues for the valley through 8pm and for the Sierra through late Tuesday morning, with hotter weather returning.
