  • Yesterday, the fire area received approximately one half to one inch of rain over the fire.  Fire crews continued scouting for good line construction location on the south east side of the fire.
  • Today, direct line construction will continue on the south east fire edge working to tie into the south side of the Pumice Desert. Fire crews continue to mop up and secure the remaining southern fire edge.
  • Burn Area Emergency Response Teams will be hiking within the cold fire area, identifying areas for critical emergency stabilization work.
  • Weather will begin a warming trend today with above normal daytime temperatures expected into the weekend, creating the potential for increased fire activity.
