Very dry air is impacting the fire due to poor to very poor humidity recovery at night.

Progress was made on the fire yesterday. Fire behavior was minimal with some single tree torching. Otherwise the fire is smoldering and creeping. The fire has the potential to move in the Pinyon-Juniper along the southeast edge of the fire. Fireline re-enforcement is still active. Crews are mopping up and patrolling the lines. Hoselays deployed in the heavy fuel types to eliminate remaining heat near the fire edge.
