Delta Fire Update for October 1, 2018

Delta Fire Wildfire
News – 10/1/2018

All evacuation have been lifted for the residents of Trinity County.

Fire behavior is minimal throughout the main Delta and Hirz Fires. Fire fighters will continue to patrol the fire and monitor the fire’s perimeter. The wet and muddy conditions may affect access in various areas of the fire. We will continue to engage in areas where it is safe for firefighters to do so.

Firefighters will continue to construct direct fire line for suppression efforts on the Delta fire. The eastern edge of the spot fire continues to hold in place west of Damnation Pass, north of Dog Creek Road and east of Clear Creek.

According to the incident meteorologist we are expecting upslope winds of 3-6 mph, ridgetop winds 5-9 mph with gusts up to 12mph. We anticipate night time temperature to be in the mid 30s for the next few days.

Interstate 5 is open in both directions with short one-lane traffic areas between Lakehead and Mount Shasta City due to construction and hazard tree removal.

Please drive safely. With rain the paved roads are often slick and expect muddy conditions on dirt roads.

While moisture has occurred across the region, please remember that burn bans are still in effect.

Area Opening/Closures:

To provide for public safety during suppression and repair, a Shasta-Trinity National Forest Closure Order is in place for the Delta Fire (order number 14-18-19).
