Firing Operation Today

The crew is involved in a large burning operation, today. Today they will continue to ignite vegetation along the jeepways to remove fuels between the fireline and the main fire. This firing operation is expected to begin early in the morning and last as long as weather conditions are favorable. These backfire operations are intended to provide a good secure line on the east perimeter of the fire in order to stop the forward progress of the fire. Warmer and drier weather forecasted through Tuesday evening will challenge firefighting efforts to complete the fire lines. A fire weather watch has been issued due to low humidity.
