The Funny River fire is holding steady at just over 192,831 acres and is considered 46 percent contained.

Fire Information Officer Brigitte Foster says the continuing damp weather and low winds have slowed the spread of the fire.

The Lower Skilak Lake Campground and boat launch area will be reopening Thursday.

There are 760 personnel working on the Funny River fire.
