All but one of the big Trinity County fire complexes are very close to being surrounded by control lines and crews will be working to prevent spot fires outside the perimeters.
The Fork Complex near hayfork is 97% contained. It burned 8 homes and 4 outbuildings along with about 36,500 acres.
The South Complex of 3 fires to the north of Hyampom has barely grown in four days, covering 29,400 acres with 85% containment. One house and 2 outbuildings have burned down.
The Route Complex is fully contained. The two fires to the south and west of Hyampom have burned about 35,700 acres and 2 outbuildings.
Completion is near on the Mad River Complex of three fires surrounding Ruth Lake in Southern Trinity County. The fires have burned 2 homes, 2 outbuildings, and 37,500 acres. Containment is at 98%.
The River Complex in the New River Drainage near Denny has burned by far the largest area, now estimated at 70,600 acres with 47% containment. No structures have been damaged and crews have managed to prevent fire from spreading into the Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation, and they've also kept it away from Highway 299. Containment is completed for the western, southern, and northern flanks. It's now headed to the east deeper into the rugged and dangerous Trinity Alps Wilderness. The only advantage there is that the fire is nearly surrounded by previously burned areas, with the exception of "Devil's Canyon", a steep area with loose rocks and soil and plenty of heavy timber to burn.
