On the fireline

Crew is spiked out in the Wilderness. They were flown in yesterday, spiked out last night and will punch in more line. Temps are still very hot and afternoon thunderstorm build-ups are present. So far, the clouds have only built up, and are still out a distant. We are half way through this assignment.

The Millard Complex is burning in rugged terrain in the San Gorgonio Wilderness. It is currently estimated at 20,214 acres and is 20% contained. There is no expected date of containment at this time. Fire continues to be active in Whitewater Canyon and Mission Creek drainage. A flow of monsoon moisture into the area will increase chances of thunderstorms monday and tuesday. Erratic, gusty winds may be possible near thunderstorms.

Aircraft use water and retardant to suppress Millard Complex July 14
