More than 2,500 people are fighting the Cedar Creek Fire Monday morning, which has grown to more than 113,000 acres. It is now 11% contained, according to fire manages.

The size of the fire grew significantly Saturday morning — from about 93,000 to 110,000 acres in 24 hours — but that was by design. 

“The increased acreage is due to firing operations that have been implemented along the primary containment line on the west side of the fire over the past few days. As fuel moisture and weather permit, more aerial ignition will occur to slowly bring the main fire toward the completed burnout,” managers said on the InciWeb website.

The fire is 113,322 acres as of 5:30 a.m. Monday. That includes 12 helicopters, two scoopers and three air attack platforms.

The Cedar Creek Fire started Aug. 1, caused by lightning.
