Suppression resources assigned to the Little Sand Fire attacked two new fires Friday that resulted from Thursday's lightning storms in the area. One fire east of the Little Sand Fire near the confluence of O'Neal Creek and the Piedra River was contained at less than one acre by firefighters and one engine. A second fire was contained at six acres south of the Little Sand Fire near the confluence of First Fork Creek and the Piedra River by two heavy helicopters, crews and engines.
