Incident Overview 
The Hathaway Fire started just before noon on Sunday, June 9 in Hathaway Canyon on the northern portion of the Morongo Indian Reservation. It is currently burning in steep, rugged terrain in the San Gorgonio Wilderness. Many of the fuels burning have been impacted by drought and bark beetle kill. Extreme fire behavior has been observed, including rollout and uphill runs. There is continued potential for large fire growth into the San Gorgonio Wilderness. Emphasis tonight is on continuing direct fire line construction, continue air operations until dusk, and night air attack flying. The Hathaway Incident Command Post has been established at Noble Creek Park in Beaumont, CA. Motorists should be aware of increased fire-related traffic along I-10 and Oak Valley Parkway.

The San Gorgornio Wilderness area remains open, except for Vivian Creek Trail. However, other trails may be impacted by smoke. Smoke may create decreased visability and increased health problems for people with respiratory conditions.

Forecasted weather overnight calls for west winds up to 25 mph, with relative humidity of 45%, and temperature of 55 degrees. A High Pressure system will rebuild in the area Tuesday and Wednesday bringing high winds, lower humidities, and poor humidity recovery at night.
