Doyle, CA, July 19, 2017 – Firefighters worked around the clock securing the containment lines around the fire. Today the focus is on extinguishing hot spots, patrolling the fire perimeter and beginning suppression repair. The spike camp at Sutcliffe will be closed at the end of shift today.
Suppression repair for the fire will begin on the southeast flank and work northwest working congruently with the Resource Advisors. The focus remains in protecting habitat for the Sage Grouse, Mule Deer, Carson Wandering Skipper butterfly, and the cultural resources in the fire area.
Some unburned islands of vegetation continue to smolder and smoke may be visible from within the burn area. Fire crews are monitoring the fire area.
Please continue to watch for fire vehicles travelling around in the area as crews finish the job of extinguishing the fire and working on suppression repair.
From today on, there will be one update per day.
