Fire managers from Rob Roy Williams Central West Zone Type 3 Team shadowed staff from Mike Uebel's Type 3 team yesterday in preparation of the transfer of command form Uebel's Type 3 Team to the Central West Zone Team that became effective at 0600 this morning. Personnel on the Stina Fire continued mop up and suppression repair work yesterday and will continue with those actions again today. If conditions are favorable, crews will conduct a burn out operation in the southwest corner of the fire today to get the fire to containment lines. The fire area remains closed in the area outlined in Closure Order 07-18-11F# Closure Order 07-18-11F#.

Smoke update: Both the Cat Fire & Stina Fire are exhibiting minimal activity; however, we are experiencing an increase in regional haze throughout many communities in Northern Arizona. Today’s satellite imagery indicates this haze is attributable to multiple wildfires across the west to include Southern Oregon.
