As predicted, strong wind gusts yesterday tested fire lines constructed over the last three weeks on the Mangum fire. By late afternoon, some internal smoke was detected along with some isolated smoke near containment lines that was quickly suppressed. Another round of red flag conditions will occur today as part of a passing front.
Today firefighters will continue conducting suppression repair and secure the fire’s edge while positioned to respond to another round of red flag conditions. Two residences along House Rock remain in “Ready” status.
