Fire activity: Cold wet weather contributed to minimal fire behavior yesterday as crews have largely shifted to repair, chipping, and clean-up.  Numerous crews were released from the fire, many were re-assigned to other incidents. As fuels dry out over the weekend, fire activity will increase but is expected to remain well within the interior of the control lines. Friday, the Rattlesnake Fire will transition back to Forest Management. This will be the final daily update unless significant events occur.
