Fire is currently at 29,912 acres and 80% contained. Closure orders remain in place with evacuations ordered immediately near the fire perimeter and where firefighting activities are taking place. Any uncontained line has the potential to heat and actively start burning. Final rehab of suppression related impacts is being completed. Crews will continue suppression repair, grid for hot spots and mop-up to secure control lines. They will patrol and monitor areas of indirect line for active fire behavior.
