The fire fighters could have their hands full today, Monday, August 27, 2007.
There is to be a strong South wind which will be pushing the northern fire lines. Winds, by this afternoon, could gust up to 30 mph. So, this could be a very long day for the people on the lines. As far as I know, the Black Hawks are on stand by.
1.3 million gallons of water have been pumped through the fire line out of creeks and swamps.
The fire cost is estimated at $5 million and 1/2 of that is for air operations.
