Redding Smoke Jumpers Eating Breakfast

Fires are still burning out there, although the fire situation has improved dramatically with cooler weather and a hint of rain over the weekend in Northern California. The Bar Complex Wildland Fire, near Weaverville, California, is only 43 percent contained as of the morning report on InciWeb.com. At 97,320 acres, it's one of the larger wildland fires in the north state this year. The Bar has burned since July 23. Estimated containment won't occur until October 15, 2006.
