While the containment line around the fire is not complete, fire activity within the perimeter is minimal.  There are a few small areas where parts of burned trees still smoldering on the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest portion of the fire footprint.  Firefighters are mopping  up these hotspots where they can be accessed.  A portion of the fire footprint also remains under snow.  Suppression repair is nearly finished and most of the containment lines not under snow are complete.   A mild wind event is expected this afternoon and firefighting resources will remain in patrol and monitor status to insure that any potential fire activity will remain within existing containment lines.  Smoke may be visible in the northeast portion of the fire in the mountains within the existing footprint. A mild wind event is predicted this afternoon.  Winds of 15 to 25 mph with ridgetop speeds of 25-35 mph are expected.  The fuels will dry out to 25-30% relative humidity but will gain moisture and recover overnight.  Temperatures are expected to be warmer today, in the mid 50s.  Evacuees and Affected Residents:  Please check the NEW Mountain View Fire Incident portal for the most current information on evacuation orders and resources for impacted residents.  Please refer it frequently for upcoming announcements: https://mountainviewfire.monocounty.ca.gov/
