Crews held and strengthened firelines and scouted unstaffed portions of the fire, planning for future operations. As the fire burned actively through the night, crews patrolled fire lines and monitored burn activity on the perimeter.
 Most of the growth of the fire yesterday was on the southeast portion near Big Mountain. Fire progression is expected to continue in that area today. Firefighters will look for opportunities to build contingency lines in that region. Dozers have constructed several contingency lines between Trinity Village and the western flank of the fire.
