The firefighters had a good day yesterday even with the 30 mph winds. There was a back burn yesterday of approximately 96 acres. They feel fire activity today should be lower (I believe due to the weather in part).
They continue to perform mop up operations which basically means there might be little areas of fire that "pop up" that they extinguish, etc. I bet there will be a LOT of that activity going on for a while.
Approximate burn acreage is at 18,483 acres.
I usually get another update around 9 p.m. so if I do, I will be back with that.
