In the North Zone, it was quite overnight on the western side around the Ruth Valley. Fire was backing against the wind towards Ruth Valley and is coming down to the control lines. The sprinkle of rain last night in the Ruth Valley helped to increase the relative humidity of the fuels in the area. Into the area around Forest Glen and south of State Route 36 burning operations were completed overnight to help walk the fire down the hill. State Route 36 may close at some point today. Fire near Snow Gap moved about 1.5 miles north east, and crews continue to strengthen the line adhead of that fire area.
