BTU Complex slows down with higher humidities

Higher relative humidities for the last two days have made it easier for firefighters to construct lines around the BTU or Butte County Complex near Paradise, California east of Chico. This trend should continue with temperatures predicted to be around 90 on Sunday and Monday with the humidity being in the mid-30s during the day and the high 60s at night. The wind should be 3-9 mph mostly out of the southwest. The fire is now 53,000 acres and is 65% contained.
