Today, considerable progress was made in containing the southeast and east flanks of the fire. Tonight and tomorrow, firefighters will continue working to contain the southeast and east flanks of the fire by constructing hand and dozer line and conducting burnout operations. On the western and southern flanks of the fire, firefighters will continue mopping up. During mop up operations, firefighters seek out and extinguish any remaining hot spots within the fire's perimeter. Firefighters are working hard to clear Highway 67 of hazard trees and other debris. Fire managers are evaluating the Highway 67 closure on a daily basis and will reopen the highway as soon as conditions are deemed safe.
