The fire continues to burn in a mixture of timber litter, slash, brush and grass. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Dozers, assisted by hand crews, were quickly dispatched to build contingency lines along the flanks of the fire. Air resources were mobilized to keep the fire in check. There was a structure fire in the Nancy Creek area early in the morning. Resources assigned to the fire assisted the local district with fire suppression.
