Primary fuels are brush (2 feet) and timber (litter and understory).
Fire behavior is minimal, with some creeping, backing, and isolated tree torching possible. Smoke maybe visible in area.
Resources will continue to monitor the fire perimeter and ensure heat sources are diminished and monitor Red Creek drainage on North side.
|Projected Incident Activity|
While interior islands of unburned vegetation may continue to be consumed and isolated tree torching is possible, the potential for the fire to spread is minimal.
Closure area has been rescinded. It is the Forest user's responsibility to know the hazards involved with traversing a recently burned area.
Moisture will continue to surge across the fire area. Intensity of showers warrants watching for pockets of heavy precipitation.
