Rain reduced Platypus/Rhino Fire activity
The Platypus/Rhino Fire received moisture throughout the day yesterday, and fire behavior greatly diminished.
With warm dry weather ahead, some potential for fire activity remains, especially near the southern edge of the original Rhino Fire where fingers of vegetation run through steep, rugged canyons.
Significant growth is not anticipated, but firefighters will continue to closely monitor the area. If activity increases, some smoke would likely be noticeable from the Flagstaff and Sedona areas.
