Hot weather may see "significant increase" in Rattlesnake Creek Fire activity

Thursday, Rattlesnake Creek firefighting crews patrolled the northern, eastern, and western containment lines, incident managers said in a Friday morning news release. Firefighters improved handlines and continued mopping an active spot in the North Fork of Lockwood Creek, with the help of helicopter bucket water drops.
