Fire behavior was minimal today on the Lone Fire. The fire now covers 5,737 acres and remains 55-percent contained.
Firefighters patrolled the line and extinguished hot spots. With higher winds in the forecast containment lines could be tested. The primary concern is the potential of embers blowing over the line from a burning juniper tree and igniting spot fires.
Smoke will continue to be visible in the area over the next few days as vegetation in the interior of the burn is consumed.
