Break In Weather Helping Firefighters Battling A Wildfire In Henry Coe State Park

Cooler temperatures and calm winds are making it easier for firefighters battling the Lick Fire in Henry Coe State Park.

Thanks to a marine layer moving into the area, temperatures are expected to be about ten degrees cooler today than they were earlier in the week.

Forecasters are predicting the winds will remain fairly moderate, blowing between three to seven miles per hour today.

With the change in weather, firefighters were able to set backfires during the night to try to slow the spread of the blaze.

The wildfire has burned 27,640 acres and is 35 percent contained.

The cost of fighting the fire has already come to more than $3 million.
