CA-CDD- Jawbone Complex; 12,191 acres, 45% contained  

Credit:  wildfirestoday.blogspot.com ~~

Significant Events: Crews and dozers continued work throughout the shift constructing direct line on both the Jawbone and Rim Fires. A burn operation has assisted with the containment objectives for the day and is holding on the southern flank of the Rim Fire at this time. Contingency plans have been established and line construction has begun to meet those objectives. The Pacific Crest Trail has been closed from HWY 58 North to the Sequoia National Forest boundary. A soft closure of Jawbone Canyon Road access to recreational areas will continue for the next several operational periods.
Remarks: Contingency planning for protection of residences in Back Canyon, Cottonwood Creek, Indian Creek and Orejano Canyon are continuing. Jawbone Fire is 1987 acres at 80% containment. Rim Fire is 10204 acres at 24% containment. Box 24: Field Observers completed damage assessment of Wind Energy Facilities, confirming loss of 19 wind turbines and damage to an additional 9. Box 27: Contingency planning, favorable fire behavior conditions, and progress made in line construction have diminished but not completely alleviated threat to structures and residences in the communities listed.
Observed Fire Behavior: Isolated runs and single and cluster torching in the interior on Rim Fire.
Planned Actions: Continue direct handline and dozer line construction. Continue contingency planning for structure protection for the residences in Back Canyon, Indian Creek, Cottonwood Creek andOrejano Canyon.
