SUMMERVILLE, Cali --- The Red Salmon Complex is now 1,877 acres and is zero percent contained.
There is an inversion layer sitting over the fires. This is causing the smoke to settle and making it difficult to use aircraft. Sunday, fire crews will be focusing on reinforcing indirect control lines on both fires. This complex is made up of two fires: the Red Fire and the Salmon Fire.
Access to Big Rock River is still closed to the public.
UPDATE: 10:00 am 08/02/2020
The Red Salmon Complex is burning 1,060 acres in the Six Rivers and Shasta Trinity National Forests.
There is no containment at this time. The U.S Forest Service says firefighters and additional resources have arrived to help fight this fire. Fire crews are working in rugged terrain with challenging access. Helicopters are also being used. On Friday, access to Big Rock River was closed for helicopter bucket use.
Two fires make up this complex. The Red Fire and the Salmon Fire. The fires are burning in remote wilderness areas. On Saturday, crews plan to continue placing control lines and improving old control lines.
