Current Situation

Situation Summary

Fire behavior moderated overnight due to increased humidity.  Several small spot fires were detected and mitigated with the support of intel platforms and night-flying
helicopter operations.  Firefighters continue strengthening control lines and moppingup hot spots.  Fire activity was minimal with isolated unburned vegetation that was primarily smoldering and creeping.  Occasional uphill runs were observed when unburned fuels aligned with winds and topography.  Steep and inaccessible terrain, dead
timber from the Butte Fire and drought stressed vegetation is still a concern, but firefighters are working to strengthen and reinforce control lines and mop up where possible.
