The fire is west of Hwy 199 and north of Hayes Hill.
Waters Creek and Slate Creek roads are closed to non-emergency traffic. Highway 199 is open. The Oregon Dept. of Forestry's Grants Pass Unit is managing the fire, and roadblocks are being staffed by Josephine County Search and Rescue. Rural/Metro Fire Dept. is protecting structures.
A night crew is being deployed to continue fireline construction. Access to the fire's edge is poor, but bulldozers are creating access points for hoses, portable water ponds and water tenders.
