Exceptionally hot and dry conditions will remain over the incident area. The fire has established in Shingle Mill Canyon and is spotting into Blair Canyon. A significant volume of smoke continues to be visible from the surrounding local areas, Tucson, and beyond. Critically low relative humidity and near-record temperatures are contributing to increased fire activity.
Firefighters will continue to scout and improve control lines and perform burn out operations as necessary. Structure protection in the Turkey Flat and Heliograph electronic site are ongoing.
