Officials have released an update on the Vantage Highway Fire which is now 35% contained. The size is still sitting at 26,490 acres, which is the size of the scene perimeter. The burn scar is estimated to be 17,000 acres. There's still no cause for the blaze, and things do seem to be improving. Friday, crews will be working on the north and west flanks, to prevent the fire from spreading to a nearby windfarm. Along the southern edge crews are on the "mop-up" stage and over on the east side firefighters are searching for remaining pockets of fire activity and hot spots. Despite making gains on the fire, officials say the shifting winds to the north east may cause an uptick in fire activity on the south and west flanks and could cause spot fires within the windfarm.
