As the fire behavior was relatively calm today, firefighters were able to make good headway. Crews continue to develop and improve containment lines, with most of the active fire remaining in the canyons. Fire manager’s estimate the fire is about 30% contained.  Due to the remote location of the fire, updates may be delayed.
