Rhoades Canyon Fire Update

Crews spent the night doing burnout operations to improve the containment line around the fire.  Firefighters will continue with burnout operations in the morning while temperatures remain cooler.  Firefighters will work to hold and improve containment lines. 

Helicopters and SEAT planes will continue to support suppression activities as needed.

The fire remains at 10,000 acres this morning and containment is at 30%. 

Concerns continue to be steep terrain, high temperatures, dry fuels, low relative humidity and afternoon winds. 

Highway 218 remains open, however, a pilot car is leading vehicles through the area, so expect delays.
