    GREATER ORANGE NEWS SERVICE



    Mild Santa Ana wind conditions returned to the Santiago Fire area overnight as firefighters kept the blaze under containment. Evacuations in the Silverado Canyon area continued because the area remains a primary concern due to the remaining hot spots, steep topography, and the possibility of rolling debris and boulders. The following is the morning update from the InciWeb site for 11/03/07:



    Current Situation:


    The fire was active in unburned fuels overnight but all containment lines are holding. Crews have been strategically placed along the fire's perimeter to handle activity generated by the increased winds. Smoke will likely be visible throughout the day. The smell of smoke may also be more noticeable.


    Holding containment lines is today's main objective. Mop up and rehabilitation of lines also continues. The Silverado Canyon area remains a primary concern due to the remaining hot spots, steep topography, and the possibility of rolling debris and boulders.


    A Red Flag warning remains in effect until Sunday evening primarily due to low relative humidity. A Red Flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions are expected.

    Mandatory evacuations: A mandatory evacuation remains in place for Silverado, Black Star, and Baker Canyons.
