Hay Slough, Harper Bend, Blind River, and Bering fires showed low growth. Smoke cleared by early afternoon which allowed the team to get a critial GPS track on the south perimeter of the Spicer Creek, Harper Bend and Hay Slough fires. An indirect dozer line was completed from the Site Road going east towards Mission Creek Drainage. Water handling equipment was checked and improved for structures along the Upper Yukon and Tanana Rivers.
