The Williams Fork Fire was active yesterday, growing by about 100 acres in the upper Williams Fork Drainage. Activity occurred between the Williams Fork River and St. Louis Peak as west winds pushed the fire east toward McQueary Creek and the Vasquez Peak Wilderness. The northern portion of the fire near Keyser Ridge held despite the winds. Strong winds, red flag conditions and extreme fire behavior is expected today. A type 1 helicopter will continue to work the Keyser Ridge area while structure protection and direct attack will occur on the southeastern end of the fire near Jones Pass and the Vasquez Peak Wilderness.
