1000 hr update: Two of the four vehicles that had to be left at Morrison trailhead on Sunday when hikers had to be evacuated off Mt. Adams were distroyed by the fire. The third suffered paint and plastic parts damage, the fourth was not damaged. The owners have been notified. The status of the vehicles at Cold Springs/South Climb trailheads is unknown at this time.
What's New: The latest measure of the fire is 5,080 acres as of this morning, with 579 personnel assigned. Containment remains at zero. Containment is the gauge of confidence fire managers have the fire will stay within existing control lines, not simply the amount of the fire that has control line on it. The fire was very active yesterday and grew several hundred acres, mostly to the north into the wilderness. There was less smoke impact to the west side of the Cascades than expected, and most of the smoke went east. Several Western Washington counties are issuing air quality advisories resulting from the many fires east of the Cascades.
