The main Cougar Fire area is approximately 222 acres, but adjacent spotting is heavy, so the total area affected by the fire is roughly 400 acres in size. The Meadow Mountain fire is 21 acres in size. Persistent rains on 8/6 slowed fire spread and also suppression activities. Plans call for lining and mopping up Cougar Ridge and Meadow Mountain fires.
