Firefighters will continue confinement along fire’s edge on the south and east side of the fire using natural barriers. They will continue to gather Intelligence to develop plans for contingency along existing trails on the south, east and west sides of the fire.
Projected Incident Activity
The north and west flanks of the fire should have little to no fire growth. The southern flank of the fire may experience some fire growth as the fire backs down the slope and cleans up unburned pockets of fuel. The southeastern flank of the fire should be the most active area of the fire near the Lion Fire scar and Little Kern Creek.
The Lion Fire, 2011 was located North of the Cabin Fire. The Soda Fire, 2014 was located South of the Cabin Fire. Both of these previously burned areas should help slow the growth of the Cabin Fire to the North and to the South. Contingency planning with affected agencies and jurisdictions is ongoing to address structure defense and resident evacuations if communities near the perimeter become threatened.
