The weather is expected to be hotter and dryer through the remainder of the weekend. Winds should remain moderate, and the fire is not expected to increase in size during this time. Firefighters continue to extinguish individual hot spots and remain prepared to assist in initial attack on any new fire starts. Suppression repair continues along the contingency fire control lines (away from the fire’s edge) that were constructed earlier during the fire. Suppression repair consists of actions taken to repair damages and minimize potential soil erosion and impacts resulting from fire suppression activities.
As this critical work continues, firefighting resources no longer needed to meet the fire suppression objectives are being slowly released back to their home units or being reassigned to other fires.
