The fire management strategy remains the same: fire personnel are still monitoring the fire within the Scapegoat Wilderness boundary, while other firefighters continue direct and indirect attack on the south flank of the fire outside of the Wilderness. As has occurred over the past several days, firefighters have also continued to monitor and suppress any spot fires in the upper Copper Creek drainage.
Tomorrow’s weather forecast calls for cooler temperatures (in the mid 60s), slightly increased relative humidity levels at 20-25% with northeast winds at 5-15 mph over the fire area. There is a possibility of thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon that may produce minimal precipitation.

All trail and area closures remain in effect. Those closure details, and other fire information, can be found on Inciweb at www.inciweb.org.
