Even though there are high winds predicted for the next couple of days, the USFS is saying that the fire will stay put. It’s up to 84% now with 100% containment predicted by Oct. 17. Pretty much everyone around here is figuring that it’s over. The crews are starting to do fire break rehabilitation, something that usually does not start until full containment is reached. Here is a perimeter map from yesterday, the 9th. Comparing it to Oct. 7th shows the line southwest of Cone Peak improving, as well as the line on the southeast corner. The line in the northeast section doesn’t seem to have improved yet.
