Current Status & Planned Activity: Clearer air and more accurate mapping revealed actual fire acreage to be 1,276. The fire area received 0.2 inches of rain yesterday tempering fire behavior and growth; similar fire activity is expected today with heavy fuels continuing to creep and smolder. Additional containment was achieved along the south edge of the fire, bringing the total to 35%.
Today, firefighters will monitor and patrol the southeast part of the fire, extinguishing any remaining hot spots along the contained edge. Crews will continue to improve contingency line to the north by removing brush and vegetation along road 427. In the northwest area of the fire, crews will begin scouting for opportunities to construct line along the fire’s edge.
Weather: Temperatures will remain cool with highs in the low 50s and breezy west winds 12 to 20mph.
