No Major Concerns at Pine Gulch Fire

The 9 AM report at InciWeb says there was a small amount of growth to the south at the Division B/A break but it did not threaten the control line.  The area is about a mile north of the Little Bookcliffs WHR.

The break is marked by back-to-back parentheses at the southern edge of the fire on today’s map.  The perimeter at that point is red—not contained—so there is still some risk of spread.

Light winds out of the northwest are predicted today, with a chance of thunderstorms.

The total area burned is now 135,900 acres, compared to 135,000 acres yesterday.

Containment holding at 47% with 935 persons assigned to the incident.

The Division B/A break is discussed at 1:40 in today’s briefing.
