And the wind and lower relative humidity actually aided firefighters in locating hot spots inside the perimeter by causing them to heat up and smoke.
Further mop-up of the fires will continue today. The northernmost section of the fire (Division A) has several hot spots inside the containment line. Some fire crews will shift from the other divisions to add capacity to this portion today.
Fire personnel will be gliding down the next two days to have the right-sized crews remaining on the fire to support the objectives. There will be crews working on the fire until it is in a patrol status. The fire team is working on plans to return management of the fire back to the local district.
Fogarty Creek State Park will temporarily remain closed to the public while fire crews are using it for fire camp.
Although there has not been a lot of smoke in the area, current smoke information for Oregon can be found on the Oregon Smoke Blog, http://oregonsmoke.blogspot.com/
