Fire resources were able to make significant progress yesterday on extinguishing hot spots within the thick oak brush bunches and tree stumps that are located next to the containment line that have the potential to reignite the wildfire. Today, crews will continue that work along the line and putting out smoking vegetation that is within the fire interior.
Public and firefighter safety are the highest priority for incident management which is why the Old Snowbasin Road remains closed although there is minimal visible smoke. Fire personnel will reassess the need for closures to continue at the end of the day.
