WEST ZONE Situation Summary:
Fire remained active throughout the night due to the poor overnight humidity and higher than normal temperatures. Firefighters actively patrolled the area and kept spot fires in check. Along the northeast and southern edge of the fire interior islands near control lines continued to burn out while crews answered calls for service in the newly repopulated areas for minor heat found near structures and roadways. Today, firefighters will continue mopping up, reinforcing control lines, and clearing hazard trees. Damage inspections continue with approximately 90% of structures assessed.
To better provide public and firefighter safety due to extreme fire conditions throughout Northern California, and strained firefighter resources throughout the country, the USDA Forest Service Pacific Southwest Region is announcing a temporary closure of all National Forests in California.

EAST ZONE Situation Summary:
Overnight, multiple crews continued to work throughout the East Zone of the Fire. Suppression Modules worked late into the night mopping up and constructing hand lines near Ralston Lake in the Desolation Wilderness and remained in the area overnight; in doing so, these specially trained firefighters will be in place to continue their work early this morning.
In the areas around Upper and Lower Echo Lake, crews held the line and performed a tactical patrol checking for hotspots.
Near Trimmer Peak and the Luther Spires areas, crews continued to hold and improve the hand line.
In the Meyers and Christmas Valley areas, pockets of heat remain throughout. As a result, crews focused on increasing the depth of mop up.
Around Caples Lake area, crews continued their work holding and improving current hand lines.
Firefighters are laser-focused and continue to work the fire around the clock, building upon the work each other has accomplished the shift prior. This hard work will continue with the goal of keeping containment percentages moving on an upward trajectory.
