The winds have continued to dry the upper layer of the fuels profile. This drying has not provided more
than a slight increase in fire behavior in the short duration. With cooler conditions, smoldering and creeping will be the predominant fire behavior across the area.
The Clear Fire has been transitioned to the home unit. Local resources will continue to backhaul equipment, mop-up and complete suppression repair work. Daily Updates will no longer take place unless significant activity occurs.
