The Hicks Creek Fire is now 100% contained. Federal, State and, local firefighters worked with crews from California, Arizona, Oregon and New Mexico to bring full containment on October 25.

Smoke may be visible for several days; however, any active fire is well inside the fire containment lines and not expected to pose a threat. Local firefighters will be monitoring the fire as it comes to full controlled status.

A possibility of flooding and debris flows still exists, and measures are being planned to moderate the effects in the coming weeks and months. Reseeding projects are in the planning stages and diversion bar sites meant to minimize erosion are being proposed.
