Both Ranch and River fires remained active today with hot weather and wind driven flame fronts. Continued high temperatures and low humidity along with limited access make it difficult to access the fire directly. The Ranch fire continued to burn toward the north towards Lake Pillsbury and East towards the Pawnee Fire scar. The River fire continued to move north and east towards Cow Mountain and Scotts Valley Road. Tonight fire crews will look for opportunities to make progress on containment.
