Current Acres: 2,298 acres
Fire officials were pleased with progress made during Saturday’s day and night shift. Crews were able to re-enforce lines and are getting closer to meeting the mop up standards for the fire. The NW corner of the fire has been difficult to control due to the limited access and very steep terrain but crews have made good progress. Snagging of this portion of the line is only being conducted where it is safe to do so and crews will continue to put most of their effort into this section of the fire. Starting with tonight’s shift many of the crews will be demobed to other incidents.
There was very little fire activity yesterday as the crews have done an excellent job of putting out any spots and mopping up.
Today crews will strengthen control lines and continue mop up efforts. The fire is currently at 60% containment.
The NW corner of the fire that was burned out in previous shifts contains large areas of burned, unstable snags in extremely steep terrain. Felling and mop up work in this area has been slow and crews are only working where it is safe to do so. The fire team is preparing to hand the fire over to a transition team this Tuesday.
|No evacuation orders have been announced/issued but a few road closures
