Slope fire is now at 60 acres, with 36 fire personnel committed to it. They are camping out at White Wolf. Smoke impacts were minimal, but visible from Tioga Road.

The Wildcat2 and Tuolumne are in patrol status with little activity or spread. Some smoke is locally visible as interior pockets continue to burn.
