Control objectives for the day:

Keep the fire North of Fruitland Road
Keep the fire South of Rocky Huncut Creek
Keep the fire East of Loma Rica Road and Iowa City
Keep the fire West of Marysville Road


Fire behavior: The fires are burning in a mix of grass and brush with stands of timber and timber litter that are extremely dry and have a heavy fuel loading. The fire spread was initially driven by high winds and low humidity with long range spotting. Group tree torching could cast embers and produce spot fires in receptive fuel beds, especially where timber litter fuel loading or heavy grass crops are high. Wind speeds are expected to significantly decrease from the previous day which will lead to lower rates of spread and lower spotting distances.

A dry weather system will pass just north of the fire site Tuesday into Wednesday. Relative humidity will remain low with poor overnight recovery. Winds will be shifting the next couple of days as the system approaches and moves through the region and will become west to northwest on Wednesday.
