The fire has now officially transitioned to a Stanislaus National Forest Type 4 Team.  Containment is up to 90% and the fire activity is minimal.  Most crews and equipment are demobing today as the incident begins to transition to rehabilitation work while continuing some mop up.

For the second day in a row, someone has flown a drone over the fire incident which has shut down all aerial operations in the area. We ask the public to please not encroach into this area either by vehicle, foot or flying drone, all of these can interfere with our operations and have the potential to be a safety issue. If an injury occurred or the fire flared up, we would be unable to utilize air resources, greatly slowing our response. Thank you.
