Decker Fire Wildfire
Announcements – 10/17/2019

Firefighters in Division T are mopping up in the Bear Creek area this afternoon. Mopup involves extinguishing or removing burning material along or near the control line, searching for underground burning roots, felling snags, and moving logs so they won't roll downhill.
A Red Flag Warning is in effect until 10 pm tonight. Fire managers say all operations are proceeding as planned.
