Today will be the last big mop-up shift before additional crews demobilize to other incidents across the state. The Team will continue to prepare for tomorrow’s transition to a local fire management organization.
One minor firefighter injury was reported on Thursday. “Overall, the Team has had an excellent safety record on this incident,” said IMT2 Safety Officer Scott West. “Their training and hard work has really paid off.”
The level 1 evacuation status remains in effect for subdivisions near the fire. The Red Cross Recovery Center in Sprague River was active yesterday, processing affected families and referring them to partner agencies for possible assistance. The Red Cross Center is now closed.
