Preacher Fire Update
Saturday, July 29, 2017
Preacher Fire Information
The fire is at 5,333 acres and 96% contained.
As fire managers anticipate 100% containment by this evening, this will be the last update for the Preacher Fire. Five crews, and six engines will finish securing the line and mopping up hot spots today as well as completing fire suppression repair to meet objectives provided by the land management agencies.
Some of these objectives consist of:
Restricting unintended/undesired motorized vehicle access that may have been created by the construction of dozer lines, and
Restoring access roads, camps, equipment staging areas, and other sites to original pre-fire condition.
Don’t let target shooting end with a wildfire:
Place your targets on dirt or gravel
Shoot in areas free of dry vegetation—and avoid shooting on hot windy days. Bullet fragments can be extremely hot and can easily start a fire.
Use safe targets
Shooting at steel targets or rocks may throw sparks into the nearby vegetation. Use paper targets or clay pigeons.
