CURRENT SITUATION
Current Situation Dixie Fire West Zone – Overnight temperatures remained warm with low
relative humidity recovery. An inversion kept smoke over the fire with pockets
of clear sky. Windy conditions will remain in the area with high pressure
building today and predicted thunderstorms. Crews will continue to reinforce
control lines, aggressively mop up hotspots, and provide structure protection in
the fire perimeter. Damage inspection teams continue to make progress
surveying areas where fire activity has diminished. The number of damaged
and destroyed structures reflected may change as teams continue to make
progress. Evacuation Warnings and Evacuation Orders are changing every
day, please see below for information affecting your area.

were also conducted to reduce the threat to structures along Keddie Ridge and
in Indian Valley. The afternoon peak in fire activity led to additional resources
being assigned in and around Wilcox Valley. Due to the fire intensity there,
firefighters were forced to pull out from direct attack but continued to construct
indirect lines. The fire continues to slow down in the limited available fuels of
the Sheep fire scar. Control lines are being constructed across the fire scar,
connecting from Hamilton Mountain to near Lone Rock. Hoses are being
added to the lines around Dyer Mountain as an additional tool in securing
containment.
