Remarks: Minimal fire growth is expected today due to precipitation predicated today and through Thursday. Resources assigned to the incident will continue to improve natural barriers along the Baker Draw Road and Warm River Road. The moisture and cooler temperatures has allowed for crews to begin heading back to their home units and the Ashton-Island Park District will continue to monitor the fire and take actions as needed.
