Situation Summary

Firefighters are continuing to strengthen existing containment lines and mop up hot spots within the fire area. Islands of unburned vegetation within the fire perimeter will be burning over the next few days and smoke from such may drift and settle in the valley areas. We ask that the citizens living in the areas affected by the fire be aware of the fire resources still working in the area and to drive safely. Be aware that fire suppression repair crews will be working in the area over the next few days. A Red Flag Warning remains in effect throughout the day for dry lightning storms that have moved into the area.
