Timber with grass and understory brush of 2 feet. Juniper, sage and grass with scattered open pine stands. The Wychus drainage to the SE has some potential for hold-overs due to heavy riparian fuel loading. ERCs have been setting new records for the fire area since 7/1 and are starting to moderate but remain above the 97th percentile. Fuels are dry and receptive to burning.
Minimal fire behavior with smoldering.
Continue to reinforce the existing control lines. Tactical patrol and mop-up around structures and roadways. Continue to gain depth towards mop-up standards. Begin suppression repair. Backhaul of excess equipment.
