Battle by Air and Ground - Images of the Whitewater-Baldy Complex Fire - Gila National Forest

With the increased humidity levels, firefighters made significant progress on the northern and western fronts of the fire. Firefighters continue to improve structure protection in Mogollon, Willow Creek, and isolated ranches. Successful burnout operations resulted in hardened boundaries around subdivisions. Substantial progress was made on north and western flanks, which doubled the percentage of containment to 10%. Firefighters are scouting terrain along the southwestern and eastern flanks of the fire for opportunities to safely put in containment lines. - Via National Forest Service
