UPDATE: The Red Salmon Complex, which is located 14 miles north of Willow Creek, CA, has grown by about one thousand acres and is now at 111,063 acres burned and is at 31 percent containment.
A Red Flag Warning has been issued to the surrounding area of the complex as Hot, dry and breezy weather conditions start today, and are projected to continue into next week. Fire Crews fear that northeast winds may result in improved burning conditions and could lead to increased fire behavior along the southeast flank of the fire. Firefighters predict that throughout the fire area, interior islands may burn and the fire will continue backing down slopes, which will most likely produce more smoke in several local communities.
Last night, the fire spread toward the northeast towards Knownothing Creek and towards the southwest near Horse Linto Creek, resulting in a slight increase in the fire's perimeter.
The Klamath and Six Rivers National Forests is still closed to all public use until further notice. Some Shasta-Trinity National Forest lands east of the Red Salmon Fire Complex are open though for public use. But campfires, gas stores, smoking and outdoor barbeque grills on houseboats are still prohibited.
