The fire grew from 116,000 acres Saturday. 

Officials said that 539 personnel were assigned to the fire, with more expected to arrive through the day.

Warm, dry conditions combined with breezy winds are expected to continue, though overnight humidity is hoped to increase.

According to officials,  direct and indirect fire line construction will continue Sunday, with crews mopping up completed line. On the southern and western flanks fo the fire, dozer line construction will continue where practical. Several crews are expected to work late into the night.
