Fire information Officer for the U. S. Forest Service Jill Cobb says cooler temperatures and high relative humidity resulted in minimal fire growth Tuesday and Wednesday.  Minimal precipitation was received in the active fire area from passing afternoon thunderstorms.  Hand and engine crews on the northeastern perimeter of the fire continued to make progress constructing line with equipment in addition to laying hose for mopping up hot spots. On the southwestern edge of the fire, fire fighters found and suppressed spot fires. Crews continued to be challenged by the combination of poor access and difficult terrain.  Structure protection preparations have been completed for the residences in the Hughes Creek, MT drainage.  The fire continues to be managed for full suppression.

333 fire personnel, including ten 20-person crews, three helicopters, three engines, two dozers, and two water tenders are all working on the Chrandal Creek fire. For more detailed and updated fire and closure information, visit
