Fire activity is calm on most sides with a few smaller drainages still active. Fire officials are using aircraft this morning before the winds develop this afternoon. Winds pushed it hard yesterday and caused significant growth. A Type 3 Team (Priest) will assume command of the fire today. The incoming team will work with Gilliam County, with whom they will coordinate structure protection for scattered ranches and homes throughout the burned area. Concerns are firefighter safety, keeping the fire out of wheat fields, and rapid growth of the fire prompted by dry fuel, steep slopes and wind.
