The fire is 22% contained. They have regained access to 750,000 gallons of water storage for fire suppression up there.
There are still over 175 fire fighters up there on the mountain.
According to the Mt. Wilson blog, all the Phos-Chek is down around the top, they are finished with the back fires for now.
The mountain top is not out of harms way yet. The fire line is fast approaching the back-fire line. If everything goes as planned, the fire shouldn't reach the top.
However with the incoming hurricaine, meteorologists are concerned about the shift in winds and lightning that could start other fires on the lesser treated slopes, or redirect fires around. The fire line is presently at the closest it has been to the mountain.
I for one am confident there won't be many problems other than minor power loss, etc., up there.
