Continuing this thread from our old home at SLU, as California's fire season is showing no sign of letting up.

The Delta Fire north of Redding is reported at 62,159 acres according to InciWeb (I'm getting conflicting reports of the acreage, so I'm going with the numbers on InciWeb). Containment fell slightly to 97 percent, due to the larger spot fire spawned a couple of days ago jumping its containment line. Mandatory evacuations have been issued for areas around that spot fire as winds whip flames.

The Delta Fire north of Redding has grown slightly, to 63,293 acres, while containment remains at 97 percent. This is largely due to the spot fire in Bear Gulch that has burned 2,376 acres since it sparked a few days ago.

The Delta Fire north of Redding remains at 63,293 acres, with containment at 97 percent. All evacuation orders and advisories from the fire have been lifted. Firefighter efforts have been helped by rain that fell in the area today, though, ironically, wet, muddy conditions are slowing fire suppression efforts temporarily.

The Delta Fire north of Redding continues to remain at 63,293 acres and 97 percent containment. The fire is little more than smoldering logs and brush, thanks to rain that has drenched the area over the last couple of days. However, ironically, the very rain that is damping the fire is also making it difficult for firefighters to complete the containment lines around it. And there is worry that when warm, dry weather returns, that the smoldering fire could reflash.
