Note: It was another great day on the fireline. Firefighters continued aggressive mop up making sure that this fire will not reignite and flare up later this summer. No additional growth has occurred in the last operational period. The size remains 2,094 acres and is now 80 percent contained. A warming trend and stronger winds are expected tomorrow that will pose a mild test to containment lines.
