Henthorne fire

The Henthorne fire in Southern Trinity

Firefighting efforts continue this weekend across the Shasta-Trinity National Forest on fires resulting from last week's thunderstorms.

The Ramshorn Fire burning east of Highway 3 and west of Castle Crags has grown to approximately 250 acres. Water and retardant drops are slowing the fire's spread while crews are working to establish containment line.

The Cutthroat Fire, located north of Highway 299 near Big Flat, is holding at 15 acres. Water and retardant drops have been very successful in slowing fire progression and crews are building line around the perimeter.

The Middle Fire, located northeast of the Canyon Creek Trailhead in the Trinity Alps Wilderness, has grown to approximately 100 areas and is impacting the Canyon Creek and Bear Creek trails. Hikers and horse riders are encouraged to avoid the area. 

In Tehama County, the 1,665-acre South Fire, southeast of Tomhead Mountain west of Red Bluff. Incident Management Team 16 was to transition with the forest today and take command of the fire Sunday morning at 6 a.m. 

Aerial reconnaissance flights and ground patrol efforts will continue across the forest for the next few days to help locate these newly identified fires. To report a new fire, please call 911.
