The Lone Fire is now 87-percent contained and remains at 5,737 acres. Today as firefighters patrol and extinguish hot spots the primary control objective is to keep the fire within the current perimeter. There are still some smoldering fuels near the line, but this is becoming less of an issue as the vegetation is fully consumed or extinguished.
As progress is made and resources are no longer needed on the fire, they are released to their home unit or to assist with other active fires. Staffing on the fire has decreased to 57 from a high of 136.
There is a slight chance of thunderstorms today, but only a 5-percent chance of any wetting rain over the fire. Wind from these storms could challenge the fire line.
Full containment is expected Sept. 12, 2019.
Firefighters will continue patrolling and reinforcing containment line by extinguishing any hot spots found near the line.
Chance of thunderstorms today. Storms may bring lightning and outflow winds. There is only a 5% chance of wetting rain.
