Many of the fuels burning have been impacted by drought and bark beetle kill.   Extreme fire behavior has been observed and is expected today. There is continued potential for large fire growth into the San Gorgonio Wilderness.

Monday’s emphasis is on continuing direct fire line construction to establish contingency lines, establish helispots and spike camps.

Firefighters are working to keep the fire North of Foothill Road, and South of South Fork Whitewater River…East of Banning Canyon… West of Millard Canyon

Smoke  from  the  Hathaway  fire  will  continue  to  be  visible  during  active burning  periods  in  the  mountain communities.  Depending on changing weather conditions, smoke may create decreased visibility and increased problems for people with respiratory diseases.
