TRINITY COUNTY – Progress is being made on the destructive Helena Fire in Trinity County.
Since Thursday night, the fire grew by about 800 acres, and is only one half of a mile away from combining with the 3,400 acre Fork Fire.
However, the Helena Fire containment has gone up from 30% to 40%.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but is believed to be human-caused.
Humboldt County and state leaders, as well as the Weaverville Lions Club have set up Helena Fire victim relief funds, which you can donate to, here:
