Incident Photo for the Encinos  Fire

The Encinos Fire saw no new growth overnight and remains at 14,907 acres. It is 55% contained, not 95% as previously reported. The decrease in containment numbers was due to miscommunication between the Encinos and Espinosa Fires. Cooler overnight temperatures and increased relative humidity have significantly reduced fire behavior. Line is holding on all sides of the fire and firefighters are confident the incoming wind event should not impact the fire's activity or cause any control problems.

Today, crews will continue to patrol and monitor line as the fire does continue to smolder in some areas and is expected to make some uphill runs within pockets of unburned fuels. The threat to structures and area infrastructure has greatly decreased.
