On August 14, a series of lightning storms moved through the area, igniting 25 wildfires. Today, more than 70 days and many firefighters later, the fire has received rain and snow, and fire behavior is reduced to smoldering. Hopefully, seasonal weather will prevail for the rest of autumn and into winter. The remaining mission of the current team is primarily equipment removal and suppression repair while keeping an eye on the fire. The information below will be updated periodically.
