Lava Fire

No significant fire growth or spotting occurred in the fire area yesterday. Crews continue to monitor containment lines and engage as necessary, while an engine continues to patrol for any flareups overnight. As seen from the valley, the fire is burning sporadically at the upper edge of the timberline, above 6,600 feet and nearing the barren slopes of Mt. Shasta. Resources still assigned to the Lava fire will remain in the area as needed for patrol and for the potential for new starts. 

Military Pass RD remains closed until further notification, but equipment operators have finished grading the road and placing rock to assist with erosion control. Please use alternative routes until repair activities are completed. 
 

Bradley Fire

No growth occurred on the Bradley fire yesterday and the fire has been updated to 100% containment. Rehabilitation for the fire area continues with the repair of roads and fire line. Engines and crews will continue to monitor for smoke and heat within the fire perimeter.
