Things went very well today. Fire lines held! There was active flame interior to Division Alpha which is fine, the lines holding is what matters. Tonight, winds are forecast to diminish quickly and humidity will start going up closer to midnight, way up, close to 40%. This is all very positive.

From here, the expectation is quite a bit of “mop up” to finish the containment line. Containment is a process of essentially turning over every square foot from the perimeter going in some distance. Some of the terrain is very steep so actual containment progress might be slow in coming.

As a reminder, YCSO does not participate in the operational briefings so we have no news to pass along and no expectation to set regarding reopopulation but we will be watching news sources and sitting in on tomorrow’s cooperators meeting which YCSO does participate in.
