Incident Overview

Updated: 6 hours, 32 mins ago — THIS WILL BE THE LAST UPDATE FOR THE STONE FIRE from NorCal Team 2. Additional updates will be posted only if conditions change, and can be found at inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/6148 or on Facebook @ModocNF.

The Stone Fire remains at 39,387 acres and is 100% contained. Mop up and patrol will continue today. Crews are anticipating a shift back into warmer, breezier conditions, and they will look carefully for any hot spots or snags that begin to show activity.
