SoCal Team 1, the incident management team managing the fire, would like to thank our firefighters for their good work, the hosting agencies for their support and the citizens of both Lassen County California and Washoe County Nevada for their positive thoughts, prayers - and good behavior, enabling our firefighters to finish their work.
