Posted: Aug 22, 2021 10:13 AM

ETNA, Calif. -- Fire crews took advantage of favorable weather conditions Saturday night and are continuing firing operations along control lines and mop-up operations where appropriate into Sunday.

Decreased fire activity will remain over the River Complex.

Fire behavior was moderate Saturday night with creeping, backing, and occasional uphill runs. Fire crews will continue to implement structure defense plans throughout the day in fire-threatened areas.

Weather: Smokey conditions will persist across the River Complex, which will help to moderate fire weather conditions, much like Saturday. Smoke keeps temperatures cooler, while humidity is slightly higher, and winds are light.

Sunday afternoon clearing will bring a slight chance of elevated fire behavior into the early evening.

Smoke will settle back over the fire area Sunday night, with areas of smoke persisting on Monday. Dry and warm weather is forecast for the week.

Fire Behavior:
Haypress Fire: The Haypress Fire is 59,108, 3% contained.

The fire continues to back slowly off the hill north of Fish Lake towards the Cecilville/Callahan Road near Dark Gulch. The main potential for growth will be along the Upper Coffee Creek Road near the Three Sisters Gulch. Westerly winds, slope, and fuel will all be aligned to push fire uphill towards the northeast above Deacon Creek.

Summer Fire: The Summer Fire is 20,500 acres, 2% contained.

Growth on the Summer fire is anticipated on the southeast flank as the fire backs towards the North Fork Trinity River. Fire crews will continue to utilize an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) drone to assist with firing operations along the 16 road to Cecilville/Callahan Road.

Cronan Fire: The Cronan Fire 5,612 acres, 18% contained.

The Cronan Fire will continue to progress to the west as fire crews limit the fire intensity along the Yellow Jacket Ridge with a strategic firing operation. Hot rolling materials on steep slopes continue to be a concern in this area. Fire crews will continue to patrol the Sawyers Bar Road area for spot fires and rolling material over planned control lines.
