The containment estimate does not mean there is only line around 85 percent of the fire, but rather that officials are 100 percent confident in 85 percent of the line.

Cool temps and high humidity has helped in suppression efforts, and firefighters continue to mop-up inside the perimeter and strengthen firelines.

Aircraft overflew the burn area today, reporting conditions to the incident commander.
