FINAL UPDATE: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 10 AM ... The majority of the wildfires in Trinity County are at full containment. The South Complex near Hyampom may reach full containment by Labor Day and the River Complex near Denny passed the 50 percent milestone yesterday. The Route, Mad, and Fork Complexes are all at full containment (ie. fire line surrounds the entire perimeter).
In Del Norte County the Nickowitz Fire is over 70 percent contained and the Gasquet Complex will likely reach 50 percent containment over the weekend.
Weekend weather is expected to remain relatively cool with favorable humidity levels. Gusting winds may increase and pose a risk of both fanning fires and toppling vulnerable trees and snags.
