The plan for today is to work further into the fires interior. Fire- fighters will be bringing in water pumps and laying hose. Starting at the established control lines crews will work inwards cooling hot spots and cleaning up around structures. 

With today’s wind advisory, winds will be coming in from the southwest and blowing to the northeast. Crews will be working on the north side of the fire, strengthening the control and contingency lines. The wind will be testing the control lines. Firefighters are prepared and ready. The fire still has planes and helicopters available, but with the thick smoke they are unable to fly. 

The National Guard is setting up their camp at the rodeo grounds on Chiloquin Boulevard. 

Safety remains our top priority. This includes trying to prevent COVID-19 infections. Personnel are following the Center for Disease Con- trol guidelines. This means limiting personal contact within fire camp and the community. The fire camp is closed to the public and media.
