Gusty Winds Could Push Containment Time Of Susanville Fire

Gusty winds are making it hard for firefighters battling a nearly 45 hundred acre blaze in the Sierra Nevada
near Susanville. Gusts up to 40 miles an hour have pushed estimates for full containment into Monday. Full containment was expected tonight.

The
blaze is now 85 percent contained. No reports of structure damages. Two firefighters and two Susanville residents have been treated for minor injuries.
