There was very little growth on the Alamo Fire Monday, with the primary activity consisting of the fire backing down slopes into canyons. Firefighters took advantage of cooler and more humid weather to construct additional containment lines. The Incident Management Team is calling it 28,926 acres.

The forecast for Tuesday predicts mostly sunny skies, 81 degrees, 42 percent relative humidity, and winds out of the southwest at 9 mph gusting up to 14. Similar conditions are expected to continue through Thursday.

Resources assigned to the Alamo Fire include 179 engines, 26 water tenders, 10 helicopters, 48 hand crews, and 29 dozers for a total of 2,027 personnel.
