South Point Fire
The South Point Wildfire put on a small amount of area since last report, but is still just over 100 acres in size.
Smoke is visible from Packwood, Randle and US 12 as winds cause increased activity, though there remains no direct threat from this fire. Cowlitz Valley Fire personnel are planning to guard against east winds expected to develop today.
The Type 3 helicopter was release, but a Type 2 will be on loan today from the Cascade Creek Fire. It will drop buckets of water on the South Point Fire to help prepare for east winds.
