Poor visibility, due to smoke cover, limited air operations yesterday morning. When it became safe to do so, firefighting personnel continued building dozer guard and helibucketing hot spots, particularly on the southeastern and southwestern flanks of the fire. Low to moderate fire activity was observed.

Today, 20 firefighters from Ontario are joining operations along with five helicopters and 12 pieces of heavy equipment. Smoke is once again limiting air operations this morning. Flights will resume once the fog and smoke have lifted.
