UPDATE: Crews slowly containing Preacher Fire

By On Your Side Newsroom. CREATED Jul 15, 2014

Crews are steadily slowing down the growth of the Preacher Fire with the help of lower temperatures and lighter winds.

The fire is estimated to be about 33,000 acres at 40% containment.  The containment is still estimated for tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. with a control time of 8:00 p.m. Saturday.

No structures have been reported lost, and officials estimate the blaze will be contained by late Thursday.
