Although strong, gusty winds continued yesterday, containment lines held and there was no growth in acreage on the fire.  Predominantly westerly winds are expected to moderate over the next few days, providing an opportunity for fire crews to focus on suppression repair today.  Repair of dozer lines and containment lines, and felling hazard trees will occupy crews not engaged in suppression.  Isolated areas of active fire remain around the fire.    Safety:  As the Fourth of July weekend approaches, tourist traffic is increasing.  Motorists should be alert for the presence of firefighting vehicles on local roads.  Closures: Forest Road 22 is closed between road 422 and road 429.  Highways 67 and 89A are open to public travel.
