Smoke: Overall good air quality continues outside the immediate vicinity of the fire, except for down the Salmon River Canyon, where smoke in the unhealthy range is still possible mid-morning. With light west winds forecast, Etna may continue to have moderate smoke impacts in the afternoon.
Fire: Fire activity has been light, but seasonal drying of fuels will continue to increase the availability of fuels to burning. With light winds today, expect fire activity similar to yesterday.
Other: Monitors are now deployed in Yreka, Callahan, Etna, Sawyers Bar, Fort Jones, Quartz Valley, Happy Camp, and Weed.
