Fire Management personnel monitoring the fire report that the fire is fairly inactive as of September 26. The size of the fire is approximately 5340 acres with a lot of unburned incorporated in the displayed perimeter. The majority of the fires perimeter has not grown for about a week. The fire area in the WF of Monumental creek is a mix of burned and unburned my guess right now at about 50% of each, with a couple smoldering spots high on the ridge on the north side of west fork monumental creek. The area continues to smolder with some interior cleanup.
