Firefighters worked aggressively through the night to build containment lines around the County Fire. Steep and inaccessible terrain has created difficulty for firefighters on the Northern end of the fire. Winds and dry vegetation still have the potential to fuel fire growth. State Highway 128, between Markley Cove Resort and Pleasants Valley Road, will remain closed due to the threat of debris rolling into the roadway.
