InciWeb this morning reports the Bone Creek fire as 40% contained and has risen to 4027 acres. The rains yesterday helped considerably and dropped around an inch of rain on the fire. Total personnel on the fire is today listed at 264, down from 365 yesterday

Fire Behavior: Isolated torching with minimal fire behavior.

Significant Events: Aerial ignition in Wiley and Cedar Creek drainages was not completed due to weather. Secured some perimeter through hand ignition, cold trailing and direct line construction.

Planned Actions: If suitable weather, continue burn out operation to limit fire spread east of Road 10. Continue direct line and mop up operation. Try to secure west flank. Assess structure protection needs along Highway 14.

I had tentatively planned a trip up to Little Goose Canyon today, but due to the rain last night I will wait for a few days. The last thing I want to do is cause any sort of damage to the now fragile burn areas.
