Burdette Fire update: August 4

Posted: Updated:

Gusty winds expected on ridgelines will most likely lead to increased fire behavior as a cold front moves over the area. An additional hotshot crew arrives today to assist in securing line completely around the fire.

Crews will search out and extinguish all pockets of heat near the recently completed containment line.

Helicopters will drop water to support firefighters on the ground.

The fire is at 645 acres with 45-percent containment.
