Those conditions are expected to continue through Sunday, with fire officials saying they expect "little to no growth" on the blaze which has burned over 34,000 acres since initially sparking June 1. The cause is still under investigation.

Meanwhile, U.S. 550 in the area open to public access without an escort. Beginning at 8 a.m. Sunday, those who have evacuated from Glacier Club to Needles will be able to return, officials say.

As of Sunday morning, the 416 Fire is 25 percent contained with 1,111 personnel working to fight it.
