11/1/2020 PM Update for the CalWood Fire

The CalWood Fire remains at 76% percent contained and did not increase in size or produce much smoke today. Firefighters continued mop-up work and were assisted with water drops from the helicopter to cool isolated hotspots. Firefighters were also able to gain more access in the rugged steep area along Highway 7 to work hotspots in that uncontained area more directly. They also patrolled the south and east areas of the fire and continued suppression repair work to minimize potential soil erosion and impacts from fire suppression activities in areas where the fire has been contained. Hotter and drier weather is expected over the next couple of days, but no significant wind events are in the forecast. Tonight, an engine crew will remain on scene until late in the evening. Tomorrow another MMA flight will help identify more hotspots and firefighters will continue their mop-up work.
