Fires continue to burn around the area and officials have updated information on those blazes.

Officials say the Dominguez Fire continues to burn but slowly. Portions of Forest Roads 418 and 409 are still closed. They say the fire was started by lightning on July 10. Crews are continuing to monitor the flames which have scorched about 2,600 acres.

Elsewhere, lightning strikes sparked four or five fires that crews have either put out or are working on. The Sage Flats fire on Glade Park is one of these blazes and officials say containment is expected Wednesday. There are two engines and six smokejumpers working on the almost three acre fire.
