According to the Minerva Incident Commander, really good progress was made on the fire line today. Crews continue to put in direct handline in the West Fork of the Mill Creek drainage. With hard work and diligence, firefighters continue to hold the fire above the 24N20 Road, where it is slowly backing down with minimal spread. On the south side, bulldozers are putting in line, with 10 more dozers requested for tomorrow. Overall, it was a successful day with minimal fire growth and moderated fire behavior. As of this evening, we have 1800 dedicated firefighters committed.
