northwest of the fire’s current location. Continue structure assessment and preparation along 4th of July

creek and Kriley creek as a precaution.

Weather conditions will be dry and with temperatures around 74 degrees. A Red Flag Warning will be in

effect from about 12 pm to 9 pm with southwest winds gusting up to 39 mph.
