As of midnight the fire was not controlled, but activity was significantly reduced and most crews were released, leaving the attack and management to Coulee City fire.

There were reports that multiple lightning strikes were being seen throughout that area all the way to Ephrata and Quincy though the cause of the fire was not listed.
