Estimated Containment Date:
Sunday, June 20, 2021 12:00 AM PDT
Grass, brush, and Pinyon Juniper
Firefighters will continue to monitor the inaccessible portions of the fire.
Projected Incident Activity:
Fire has the potential to spread to the North in the heavier fuels in the step terrain that is inaccessible to firefighters.
Temperatures will not be as hot going into the middle of next week. However, the return of gusty southwest winds, low RH, and cured fuels will keep an elevated fire threat across the region.
