Lick Creek Lookout was not damaged. The fuel near it was mostly grass, and the fire went around the structure without harming it. Lookouts don't generally have trees nearby, as it would block the view. Mondays fire report: "Crews on the south side, using extensive hose lays are continuing to hold the fireline and scouting opportunities to continue to the west.

This direction (southwest) was where the most active growth of the fire was occurring, and crews were hard at work to stop its progress along the southwest- edge. The most deadly factor in the spread of this fire is wind-blown cinders that ignite ahead of the main fire as much as half a mile away. Fire personnel are constantly watching for the resulting new ignitions and put them out as quickly as humanly possible.
