Weather Brings Mixed News for Firefighters on the Smith Run Fire
Rain, a fast moving thunderstorm, and a high wind warning kept firefighters from the Smith Run Fire today. The rain is welcome, but winds of 25 mph, gusting to 60 mph, will quickly dry leaves and twigs throughout the area. Tomorrow's forecast is for calmer weather. These more favorable conditions will permit firefighters to safely return to the area and continue working towards containment. The fire’s perimeter has not changed; the total acreage remains about 2,000 acres, with 80% containment.
