Personnel used an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) to fly over the eastern border of the fire to scout for hotspots. The UAS detected heat within the fire perimeter and helicopters were ordered for bucket water drops in addition to firefighters building line on the ground. The UAS continues to be used today.


The fire has begun moving out of the Superstition Wilderness and into the corridor along State Highway 188.

Early this morning, fire managers implemented firing operations adjacent to the Spring Creek Ranch. Additional firing operations are planned as conditions allow. These actions will create a wider barrier to the fire’s movement with burned vegetation. A column of smoke was visible this morning from those operations around Spring Creek.
