Concerning the situation, the River Delta Fire District said, “The majority of the ‘smokers’ are located within the interior of the fire area and will likely continue to pop up due [to] the peat soil conditions. We are also continuing our efforts in working with neighbors to locate their pets and provide food and water for them. We are grateful for all of the donations, love, and support from our community as we continue to work through this together.”
