The Tucker Fire again stayed within containment lines today despite the slightly windier, drier conditions which arrived today in advance of the approaching front. A Fire Weather Watch remains in effect until 8pm tonight.
Crews continued to make good progress today detecting and mopping up isolated areas of heat close to the fire’s edge. Crews will remain on the fire overnight to ensure that containment lines remain secure.
Residents and visitors to the area can expect to see isolated smokes within the fire area as unburned islands of vegetation continue to ignite and burn. These areas do not threaten the fire’s containment.
