TRINITY COUNTY, Calif. - On Wednesday night, evacuation orders were issued for zone five in Trinity County for the River Complex but have been corrected to warnings, the U.S. Forest Service said.

On Wednesday morning, the USFS said issuing an evacuation order was premature and the area is in a warning. 

The warning includes the area of Hatchet Creek Rd. south through Trinity Center proper to Hobel Dump Rd.
