Snow and rain may help firefighters douse the 7,500-acre acre Topaz Ranch Estates fire today.
The forecast for Holbrook Junction calls for a snow level of 5,800 feet before 11 a.m. and then a chance of rain.
Firefighters have a line a third of the way around the 7,500-acre Topaz Ranch Estates fire, despite high winds and dry conditions.
