Final Update

Summary

Crews will continue to monitor and patrol containment lines where accessible. Steep rugged terrain often hinders firefighters from accessing all areas of the fire. The San Jacinto Wilderness is one of those places. Fortunately, the natural rock formations act as barriers slowing or stopping the fires progression. There has been no fire growth in the past few days, and none is expected.
