Ground and aviation resources were able to engage the active portion of the Pine Fire yesterday.
An unnamed drainage south of Bishop creek is where the fire became visible after days of drying out from last weeks storms.
Fire crews will continue constructing fire line using Minimal Impact Suppression Tactics (MIST) attempting to secure the active fire edge.
The remote Pine Mountain Wilderness would present challenges to extract injured personnel if an incident were to occur. Contingency plans as well as a Fireline Medical Team are in place.
