Dozers are being used to recontour firelines, hand crews are pulling brush back overexposed soils, and chippers are mulching cut vegetation into chips that are spread over disturbed soils to minimize erosion.
Incident team members said they are hopeful this work will be completed so that care of the fire area can be returned to the Plumas National Forest.
A Red Flag Warning has now been issued for the area effective Monday night at 11 p.m. and extending through Wednesday morning at 8 a.m. Crews said locally stronger gusts are possible over ridges and through favored gaps and canyons during the night and morning hours.
Forest closures are still in effect and hazardous conditions remain in the burn area. The public is being asked by the U.S. Forest Service to stay out of forest closure areas and off of Forest Service roads.
Law enforcement will be patrolling the area. Individuals are also asked to watch their speed and be aware of logging trucks around La Porte Road.
