Just spoke with CalFire Humboldt Del Norte Unit Division Chief Jonni Mayberry. Ms. Mayberry said, if conditions do not worsen, the estimated containment date is next Tuesday; however at this point determing how long it will take to contain the fire is not something that can be predicted.
CalFire has been very responsive to messages and returning phone calls, which is very appreciated.
