Last night an infrared flight was able to capture the fires hot spots. Today crews will focus on extinguishing those as well as focusing on mop- ping up around the perimeter. “Everyday we’ll get a little deeper and a little deeper into the fire’s perimeter” states Operations Section Chief, John Pelliser. 

Yesterday we did not get the wind event that forecasters predict- ed. But nonetheless crews are working hard to reinforce lines and secure areas with a lot of heat. Today’s forecast calls for a Red Flag Warning from noon to 9 pm today. 

We will be holding our third Facebook live virtual community meeting tonight at 7 pm. Tune into our Facebook page for the latest up- dates. The public does not have to have a Facebook to watch the live event, use this link https://www.facebook.com/events/351351509239951 

All evacuation levels remain the same. Current evacuation levels are shown to the right. We do not expect them to change until after the Red Flag Warnings expire and the predicted winds end. 

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