The Deception fire continued to add minor acreage yesterday as interior pockets continued to burn out. Fire behavior was characterized as creeping and smoldering throughout the day. Slight smoke production was observed over the fire. Winds increase Tuesday afternoon which will help clear smoke out of the area.  Warmer and drier conditions return starting on Wednesday.
Burnout operations will begin Tuesday and continue into the week.  These burnouts are needed to secure uncontained fire within the perimeter. This will increase smoke impacts. The level of impact will depend on the progress of the burnouts and the weather. Decreased air quality will be realized locally and down valley as this smoke flows to the Northwest during morning hours.
