A new closure order is now in effect as of noon yesterday closing portions BLM Road 7101 and BLM road 7178. For full order information visit Flag fire closure information on Inciweb.
The fire has remained within its footprint for the past two days due to Tuesday’s precipitation and the efforts of firefighters. Wildland fires typically burned in a mosaic pattern, leaving many interior islands of unburned vegetation. These unburned fuels within the interior of the perimeter have potential to show more active fire behavior with the drying trend moving over the fire area.
