The Cat Fire is at 0% containment and is in monitor status. Containment figures are calculated based on a fire's interaction with constructed or natural fireline. Since the Cat Fire never burned up to the constructed or natural firelines, no official containment was reached; however, there is little fire activity on the fire perimeter with only a few interior hot spots still burning. The fire remains within the initial planning area set by fire managers. The fire area remains closed as outlined in closure order 07-18-10F# Closure Order 07-18-10F#.
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.
