Fire crews continue to patrol containment lines and perform mop-up operations and have begun rehabilitation in the Campbell Fire area located in the Ishi Wilderness of the Lassen National Forest north of the community of Campbellville in Tehama County.
As of this morning acres burned on the Campbell Fire remain at approximately 865 and it remains at 90% contained. Fire officials anticipate it will be 100% contained by this evening. The area of the fire backing down to Deer Creek is the containment line and once it reaches the creek the fire should be fully contained. To aid in containment humidity levels have continued to rise and precipitation is forecast for the area.
Three hand crews and one helicopter remain on the fire with more downsizing of resources expected later today.
Although the immediate danger from this fire has decreased significantly other dangers still exist in the fire area such as hot spots in the interior fallen branches and hazard trees. The public should also remain alert for firefighters and apparatus in the fire area.
Barring any unforeseen changes this will be the FINAL UPDATE for the Campbell Fire.
