Timber (Litter and Understory)
Brush (2 feet)
Timber and brush fuels broken by lava stringers that separate the available fuels. Live fuel moistures are very low for this time of the year.
Fire activity is minimal with smoldering and creeping towards tree line.
Crews will continue to actively patrol and suppress emerging hot spots within the fire perimeter as needed to minimize the possibility of fire spread.
|Projected Incident Activity|
Continued mop up and patrol. Within the burned area, pockets of smoke and unburned fuel islands will remain a concern.
Cool conditions will limit fire activity.
