Officials said fire behavior dictates air quality, which will be determined by the flow of the winds.
"Our winds are predominantly from the northwest throughout the day, which lifts the smoke and transports it through the south," said air resource specialist Jinny Reed.
That’s something officials expect more of going forward.
"It's going to continue that way,” Bell said. “We've had some predictions of gusts to 20 miles per hour at times. Of course, that's high level winds."
With current conditions, Fields said he believes the fire, now 25 percent contained, is winding down, but crews will continue to stay alert.
"Things are very positive right now, but we know that fire is very unpredictable,” Fields said. “The weather could change on us, we could get some severe weather in the next couple of days, but so far that's just not the case."
Fields went on to point out that not a single home has burned in a local wildfire since 2003.
