Yesterday’s Operational Shift       Fire lines were wind tested yesterday. Very gusty winds of 40-50 mph occurred over the fire ahead of a cold front. The fire stayed in the current footprint despite the wind event. Containment on the north and east perimeter of the fire was achieved. On the south and west perimeter, fire crews used water from hoses to mop-up pockets of heat from the fire perimeter inward to increase depth and secure fire lines. Crews completed felling hazard trees and dead trees, snags, along Forest Road 476. ·  Today’s Operational Expectations                 On the south and west edge of the fire, crews will continue to mop-up pockets of heat.
