Air response was called out first thing Wednesday morning to help with firing operations on the Delta Fire, burning in Northern Shasta and Trinity Counties. Fire officials say northern Shasta County can expect more containment, if the day's operations go as planned. Wednesday morning helicopter crews drew continuous loads of water from Shotgun Creek in Sims as part of a direct attack on the east and west ridges boarding Interstate-5, where the Delta Fire continues to burn. "We're bringing direct fire line down a [bull]dozer line and trying to tie it in with another piece of dozer line we have above the community of Highland," Division Chief, Mave Juarez said night crews made a great deal of progress on the fire and now the next shift has the obligation of seeing it through.
