Parts of the Fuller Fire received as much as 1.25 inches of rain Wednesday, flooding some parts of the burn area. Fire personnel continued to build fuel breaks along forest roads 219, 610 and 611, and clean up areas that were impacted by the rains.
More heavy rain is expected today which will continue to keep fire activity to a minimum but also carries the potential for more flooding. Visitors are asked to use caution while driving in the rain and be mindful of fire equipment on the roads. Fuels mitigation and road clean up will continue today.
