Wildfire Could Be Contained Monday

A 600 acre wildfire in rural Siskiyou County near the Oregon border is expected to be contained by Monday. Calm winds yesterday allowed fire fighters closer access to the flames. There are 500 fire fighters on scene and no injuries or structure damage have been reported. The Oregon California Incident Management Team has been called in to battle the blaze. The rugged and steep terrain is making it difficult to gain access. Calm winds today should help the crews continue to keep the flames from spreading.
