Firefighting resources had continued success with suppression efforts,
mop up and rehabilitation activities.

The Peavine fire and Table Mountain have merged into one fire area

from both complexes worked today to implement a helicopter burn out
operation and line construction. Travelers should check with the
Washington State Department of Transportation for current highway
restrictions.

A new start was reported this evening near Signal Peak. Firefighters
responded with helicopter bucket drops and will staff the fire tomorrow.
