Three Massive Wildfires Burn Out of Control
The Trinity Ridge fire has now scorched nearly 91,000 acres and is five percent contained.
Close to 1,200 firefighters are battling the flames near the town of Featherville.
Evacuation orders are still in place from Featherville to the Paradise area because of thick smoke and reduced visibility.
The expected containment date is October 1st.
The Halstead fire, burning 18 miles northwest of Stanley, has destroyed over 93,000 acres and is five percent contained.
463 firefighters are battling the flames.
The evacuation orders for the Yankee Fork area have been lifted.
The expected containment date is October 16th.
The Mustang Complex is close to 90,000 acres today and is seven percent contained.
Over five hundred firefighters are battling the six fires; however, five of those fires have now burned together.
The Lost Packer fire continues to burn on its own and grow in size.
Much of the complex is on steep, inaccessible terrain making it difficult to fight.
