The Sunrise Fire continues to smolder and creep in the Quartz creek and Fortysix creek drainage. The Sunrise Fire is being managed utilizing multiple containment strategies. The north, east and southeast portions of the fire are being fully suppressed and fire suppression damage repair is occurring. The southwest perimeter of the fire is being managed under a point protection strategy due to limited access and hazards to firefighter resources. The western edge of the fire is being managed under a confine strategy to keep fire within defined boundaries; snags, spotting threat and steep terrain pose a hazard to firefighter safety.
