Work on suppression repair is still continuing on the Delta Fire. We are down to 53 miles to go so we are almost there. Work will continue for a few more days until stage 1 repair is finished. The Forest Closer Order (order number 14-18-19) is still in place. For specific recreation information contact the Weaverville Ranger Station (530) 623-2121, the Shasta Lake Ranger District (530) 275-1587, or the Mt. Shasta Ranger Station (530) 926-4511 for specific information.A warming trend is expected over the next few days with warm temperatures and very dry air and an off-shore wind. This will likely result in more smoke being visible from still smoldering pockets of heavy fuels (logs, stump holes, etc.). Crews are continuing to patrol the fires perimeter to insure there is no threat to the fire lines.
