Overnight, fire behavior was moderate with creeping, backing, and occasional uphill runs. Firefighters will continue implementing structure defense plans throughout the day in fire threatened areas.

Weather: A weak weather system is pushing through the area early Saturday. Cooler temperatures, drier air and winds will be out of the west-northwest.

Smoke from the McCash Fire will drift over the River Complex. Higher humidity and weaker winds are enabled by smoke cover. Elevated fire weather potential exists, although lighter winds will limit the overall fire activity.

Today crews are working on:
• Monitoring and implementing structure defense plans in communities threatened by the fire.
• Continuing mop up and patrol of existing control lines, monitoring for spot fires and slop-overs on all River Complex fires.
• Constructing and improving fire lines in all divisions where conditions allow, and where personnel and equipment are available.
• Conducting firing operations where feasible to strengthen containment lines and remove available fuels for the fire to consume.
• Continuing direct and indirect line construction and firing operations on the north side of the Summer and the south side of the Haypress fire to keep the fire from progressing towards communities.
• All fires within the River Complex are being managed under a full suppression tactics plan.
