ETNA, Calif. -- The River Complex has burned a total of 185,862 acres with 21% containment.

Haypress and Summer Fires have burned 179,922 acres. Cronan has burned 5,940 acres. Of the 32 original fires comprising the River Complex, only the Haypress and Summer Fires remain active. The Cronan Fire has remained in its present footprint.

The property damage assessment stands at 94 total structures. This includes 30 residential, 39 out buildings, 24 commercial and one cabin. For questions or information regarding the status of your property, call Trinity County Office of Emergency Services (OES) at (530)-623-8223.

Crews on the River Complex experienced minimal fire movement and were able make good progress toward working active areas of the Haypress/Summer fires.

Firefighters will continue constructing a direct fire containment line within the southeastern fire perimeter, north and south of Coffee Creek. Resources from less active areas of the fire were temporarily moved in to assist with these operations.

Crews are using indirect fire containment lines in areas where terrain and other factors make direct fire line construction too dangerous. Helicopters were also able to conduct aerial fire suppression operations due to improved visibility.

In the northeastern fire perimeter, firefighters are continuing to conduct direct fire suppression near Sugar Hill. Crews are working to bring containment lines to existing road systems to contain the fire with less impact to the landscape.

As conditions permit, firefighters will use a combination of ground and aerial ignition operations to remove vegetation. This will hinder the fire’s progress toward the community of Callahan.

In the northwestern fire perimeter, firefighters will continue defensive firing operations near existing trails around the spot fire adjacent to Parker Meadow to prevent the fire from spreading east toward Trinity Center. Crews are also using defensive firing adjacent to Cecilville Road to hold the primary containment lines to prevent the fire from spreading to the north.

Evacuation orders and warnings have been issued for Siskiyou and Trinity Counties. For specific information regarding evacuations visit: https://www.co.siskiyou.ca.us/emergencyservices.

Road closures are at Coffee Creek Road west of Highway 3, Cecilville Road west from Callahan, and Cecilville to Plumber Creek north and west of the Siskiyou-Trinity county line. Sawyers Bar Road from Highway 93 to Yellowjacket Road. Get live road info at: http://ca511.dot.ca.gov/.
