HAPPY CAMP, Calif. – Fire activity on the McCash Fire remains minimal. In the northern area a small amount of fire activity was visible yesterday in the Lick Creek drainage well within the fire perimeter. To the south a small amount of heat was also observed in the Wooley Creek Drainage but was not a threat to containment lines. Crews continue to patrol within the fire area, identifying and extinguishing any remaining heat in isolated stump holes and downed logs. Significant progress has been made repairing roads as additional graders have arrived, and hazard tree removal is underway.    

A cold front will move across the fire area after noon today and bring isolated to scattered showers, but only light amounts of precipitation. Temperatures will be turning colder behind the front tonight with north/northeast winds increasing along the ridges by early Monday morning. Wind speeds along the ridges on Monday will be in the 10-20 mph range with gusts 25-35 mph.
