Another active fire day is expected today. The fire remained active overnight due to poor humidity recovery. Fire activity is expected to increase throughout the day, especially in areas where slope and winds align.
Last night, crews made good progress establishing an anchor point at the southwest corner of the fire and completed burn out operations along the southern edge of the fire. Today firefighters went direct along the west edge of the fire to the north. Dozers and engines continued with structure protection on 2 ranches to the west of the fire and at Palace Station to the north. Air support worked most the day on the north end of the fire keeping the fire from moving past Longfellow Ridge.
