DUBLIN (KCBS) — There was encouraging news for firefighting crews battling the Morgan fire Tuesday morning as there was no orange glow or plume of smoke visible on summit of Mt. Diablo.
Cal Fire reported on Tuesday morning that the wildfire is about 45 percent contained and 3,243 acres have burned—down from the originally reported figure of 3,718. They expected that daylight would show improving conditions.
Fog rolled in during the night bringing welcome humidity and lower temperatures which should give the 700 firefighters a good chance to contain the blaze. With another 55 percent of the fire to contain, fire spokesman Dennis Rein said the work was far from over.
“We’re going to keep an eye on all the areas around the fire and make sure that nothing that’s outside the line starts new fires,” fire spokesman Dennis Rein said.
