Officials reported this morning that the fire has crossed South Fork Badger Creek, about a half mile downstream from the South Badger/Elbow Creek Confluence and towards the West side of Goat Mountain. This was the most active portion of the fire. It has also continued moving on Curly Bear Mountain, crossing a prominent rock slide. No structures are threatened.

A confine and contain strategy is in place. IC 4 + 3 fire personnel are at the Badger Cabin and are monitoring the fire behavior. We do expect fire behavior to pick up with the current expected weather conditions.
