Just when you are thinking it's all over! There is still the possibility of southward spread as the weather warms in a day or two requiring a firing operation along the just completed fire break.

From Inciweb:
"Remarks
With warmer and drier conditions expected, the potential remains for the fire to spread to the south within the Pasayten Wilderness which could prompt firing operations along the primary line near the Pat Creek Dip Site. Mazama, Lost River, and Rendezvous structure areas remain in Level 1 Evacuation status due to this possibility."

"Due to Diamond Creek’s minimal fire behavior, cooler temperatures, higher humidity, fall-like weather conditions and completion of the primary fire line, the Level 1 Alert has been removed for Lost River, Mazama, and Rendezvous areas."
