Smoke may be visible in/around the Big Bear and Seven Oaks areas. The smoke is caused by gusty winds causing previously unseen deep heat to begin smoking. Crews continue to seek out these heat sources and take action to extinguish them. These new smokes are interior and the fire is holding within control lines. Firefighters are working to actively secure the fire edge mopping up 100 feet in.
At 7:00am Monday the fire transitioned to a local Type 4 organization and R. Gillespie has assumed command of the Radford Fire. Currently, 4 Engines, 1 Water Tender, and 2 Hand Crews remain engaged in the control of the fire.
