Timber with grass and understory
Minimal fire activity with smoldering, backing, and creeping.
Monitor fire progression towards Road 332. Use resources as necessary to slow fire advancement if it threatens to cross containment lines. Maintain road and area closures.
Projected Incident Activity
Fire activity will be minimal with some backing, creeping, and smoldering fire behavior, as fuels continue to dry out from the precipitation event a week ago. The active perimeter and areas of intense heat will continue to burn, consuming large woody fuels. Spotting and rollout is a potential.
