Firefighting efforts continue to be focused on protecting structures and controlling the growth of the fire. Favorable weather conditions and management tactics utilizing current resources, have allowed crews to make increased progress on this fire and keep the perimeter as small as possible.
They don't seem too worried about this fire. The Rush fire near US395 is larger, closer to structures, and has the potential for more damage.
Most of the comments from the Redding article seem to be from people with the 'fight fire at all cost' philosophy. They are more concerned about the dollar value of the timber harvest, than the long term health of the forest.
