Over one inch of precipitation fell over the fire area over Labor Day weekend, with up to four inches of snow at the highest elevations of the fire. The storm was followed by several days of cool, cloudy weather. The extended forecast calls for more clouds and chances for precipitation. This should result in minimal if any fire spread.
Fire managers will continue to patrol and monitor the fire.
|Projected Incident Activity|
Smoke in interior pockets of unburned fuel may be observed until the fire recieves significant precipitation.
This will be the final update unless significant events occur.
