The Fuller Fire is approximately 38 percent contained and is estimated at 14,385 acres.
Firefighters continue mop-up operations along the southern perimeter of the fire while making progress with strengthening the contingency fire lines along Forest Roads 610 and 611. Yesterday, moisture was received over parts of the fire which helped to moderate fire behavior. The most active part of the fire continues to be on the west flank in Fuller Canyon outside of the Outlet Fire scar area. We expect a chance of rain today with a drying trend for the remainder of the week. Fire resources will assist with any new fire starts within the Grand Canyon National Park and Kaibab National Forest North Zone area.
