Yesterday storm systems near the fire area produced gusty outflow winds. The winds increased fire activity in the Fish Creek area and along the northwest perimeter of the fire near Pinion Mountain. Containment remains at 68 percent. Fire crews continue to suppress hotspots along the fire’s edge. Smoke may be seen due to pockets of vegetation burning within the fire perimeter.
Suppression repair efforts are being conducted in all closed areas, such as chipping downed trees and hauling out equipment and debris to minimize the effects caused by the fire suppression.
