Firefighters continue to make progress on Scott Canyon Fire

Firefighters spent the day improving the fireline on the Scott Canyon Fire and mopping up hotspots. They successfully held the line on the Scott Canyon Fire through the afternoon winds today. The fire is still 33,587 acres, and is now 75% contained. Fire officials expect full containment tomorrow.

Firefighters will continue mopping up for the next several days. The area also contains a lot of steep narrow canyons with unburned fuel. People in the area should expect to see smoke from the interior for quite awhile.

Firefighters spend a lot of time watching out for dangerous fire situations, and hiking up and down steep hills in rough, rocky terrain. On the Scott Canyon they're watching out for wildlife as well! This rattlesnake came out into the warm ash!
