ETNA, Calif. -- The River Complex has burned a total of 190,884 acres with 45% containment. The Haypress and Summer fires make up 184,944 acres of the complex, while Cronan has burned 5,940 acres.

An incoming cold front, including rainfall is expected to arrive by mid-day Saturday.
The Cronan and Cecilville areas remain in patrol status. The Carter Meadow to Sugar Hill area have containment lines in place with crews remaining in the area improving lines. South of Callahan, dozers and crews also continue to improve containment lines.
The fire near Craggy Peak remained active overnight as it responded to the southwest winds and warm temperatures.
Aircraft were utilized around Craggy Peak until smoke conditions impacted visibility and aircraft were redirected to other areas of the fire. Crews remained in place and continued ground operations after the aircraft departed.
The Tango Blue Lake spot fire required aircraft resources and showed slow growth, according to fire officials. Aircraft, including fixed wing and helicopters, conducted air operations and dropped retardant in the areas of Eagle Creek and Minnehaha Creek.
Specialized tenders equipped with retardant were also utilized to bolster containment lines. Crews continued to mop-up near Coffee Creek where areas of heat not previously visible were observed as the afternoon winds developed.
A new one-acre spot fire developed Friday in the Little Boulder Lake area, just outside the hand line. Crews were in place and quickly formed a containment line around the spot fire.
