Firefighters make progress on wildfires


Firefighters have completely contained half of the more than two dozen wildfires that were burning in California at the start of the week.

This before a change in the weather Sunday will bring gusty winds and increased fire danger to the area.

The largest fire is still the Walker Fire in Plumas National Forest. It is 51,872 acres and 42% contained.

The Taboose Fire in Inyo County is 9,427 acres and 56% contained.

The Cow Fire is also in Inyo County. It is 2,025 acres and 70% contained.

The Lone Fire near California’s northern border is 5,737 acres and 95% contained.

The Springs Fire in Mono County is 4,840 acres and 98% contained.

The South Fire burns near the now-contained Red Bank Fire in Tehama County. The South Fire is 4,094 acres and 20% contained.

The Tenaja Fire is still 1,926 acres and now 99% contained.
