“They’re going back to all these fire lines that we have created over the last week.  They’re patrolling those, moving into the perimeter of the fire to continue to hunt down those pockets of residual heat along the perimeter of the fire.”

Crews have been concentrating on fortifying containment lines on the fire’s north and east sides, closest to the town of Isabella.  McCreedy says too much moisture can slow down controlled-burns that crews use to eliminate all fuel in areas where they’re establishing containment lines.
