    • Here’s what Six Rivers is saying about the Ruth Complex.

      Ruth Complex: The complex consists of three fires for a total of 4,666 acres, 80% contained: Willie (3,071 acres, 70% contained), Dutchman (1,545 acres, 100% contained), and Secret (50 acres, 100%).

      The Willie Fire remained calm with more moderate behavior throughout the day. Handcrews were able to continue constructing, improving, and repairing containment lines, tying in with natural features and a trail to keep the fire in check on its western side. The 3,071-acre Willie Fire is 70 percent contained. An infrared flight last night revealed very little heat remaining within the fire perimeter, with most of the scattered, isolated hotspots concentrated in the northwest portion of the fire.

      On the 1,545-acre Dutchman Fire, which is fully contained, crews anticipate completing repair work today. As operational needs decrease, crews and other resources are being released and reassigned to more-active fires in the region.
