The fire made a hard run this afternoon, not sure where exactly but I could see the column in the photo @SmokeyPack posted. Then the fire activity was greatly reduced the rest of the afternoon. It crested Little Cottonwood Peak and was visible working its way down Shake Gulch toward Highway 96. I’d say it was about 1/3 of the way down the slope when I left about 1700 hours. AA was putting a copter on Div Z to slow that down, but there were no ground resources there. There will be significant acreage growth over the map that was posted this morning.
Edit: ONCC News and Notes has it at 1100 acres, 0% contained.
