Fire crews on the Mangum Fire are now focusing on suppression repair, while being vigilant to ensure that fire does not threaten containment lines. Suppression repair involves "cleaning up the mess" created by activities such as dozer line construction, hand line construction, and opening of closed roads. Containment lines and reopened roads are being graded and water barred to mitigate erosion, and standing snags are being felled and removed in the interest of public and firefighter safety. The perimeter of the fire is being patrolled and monitored by firefighters, and appropriate action is taken to keep the fire within containment lines.

Grass-shrub fuels with pinyon-juniper (PJ) are common below 7,000 feet elevation. Continuity of finefuels is highly variable, and inversely related to the density of PJ. Ponderosa pine litter fuels have been
the primary driver of fire behavior above 7,000 fee
Fire behavior was primarily limited to creeping and smoldering, with isolated torching in unburned interior islands.
Hold and patrol control operations, Blade roads within fire area from fire traffic damage, Continue supply
and equipment back haul. Suppression repair is complete.
|Projected Incident Activity|
Minimal surface spread anticipated. Smoldering heavy fuels within the interior continue to
consume. Minimal smoke production expected. )
Drier air mass is moving into the area dropping relative humidities
below 15%. Haines index of 4 will climb to a 6 by Sunday
