We're hoping to consolidate (the fires) and certainly the perimeter edges of those fires before the temperatures peak back into the 40s later in the week.

While temperature will ease overnight the fires will continue to burn and we won't know the real damage until the morning.

Unfortunately I don't think it's a case of 'if'. I think that the weather conditions are conducive to rapid fire spread.

There is concern that there could be more lightning with the storms as they progress over the next couple of days. But hopefully we will have enough rain to bring some relief and some extinguishment to some of these major fires.

There is concern there that if that fire does move in a southerly direction under increasingly northerly winds, we do hold concerns for that fire.
