Valley Fire

Valley Fire

Fire activity remained minimal throughout the day as firefighters continue to mop up hot spots and secure the fire perimeter. Keeping the fire within its current perimeter diminishes the threat to adjacent communities every day. High pressure over Southern California will result in increasing temperatures through the middle of the week.
