Officials have revised the size of the Dry Creek Fire downward, but full containment is a long way off.   The fire was listed early this morning at 322 acres, and the containment level edged up to 15 percent, but the estimated full containment date is not until July 24.  The fire continues to back down into drainages and make short uphill runs, if material rolls down hill.  Night operations were to hold and patrol completed line.  The fire is expected continue to move northwest, and west, in the timbered drainages.  The fire is mostly wind and terrain driven at this time.  Highway 141 remained closed from BZ Corner north to Warner Road, with a detour from BZ Corner through Glenwood to Trout Lake.  Residents located along Highway 141 north of Meyers Road and south of Pine Flats Road remain on a Level 1 evacuation notice to be ready to leave if necessary.
