Firefighters have successfully contained every part of the Committee Fire, located east of Sedona, accessible by ground forces.
The Committee Fire is 57 percent contained at 335 acres.
Firefighters spent Thursday securing line along the top of Munds Mountain while aerial resources conducted air operations. Helicopters will continue to drop water on the steep chutes along Jacks Canyon -- inaccessible by firefighters on the ground -- as long as weather safely permits.
The steep chutes along Jacks Canyon will remain unstaffed because firefighting crews cannot safely access the terrain.
Smoke will remain visible from the Sedona area over the course of the next several days as the fire continues to smolder through the inaccessible brush.
Substantial forecasted rain will aid in the full suppression of the Committee Fire. There is a 60 percent chance of rain Saturday night into Sunday.
Current resources assigned to the Committee Fire include one fuels crew, one engine, two Type 1 helicopters, one Type 2 helicopter and one Type 3 helicopter.
Individuals are asked to refrain from flying drones anywhere around the fire's perimeter due to the large number of aerial resources working on the Committee Fire. If drones are present, all forest aircraft must be grounded, which hinders firefighting efforts.
No structures are threatened by the Committee Fire at this time.
This will be the final news release for the Committee Fire barring any notable events or an increase in fire size or behavior.
