Fire Summary:As of 9 a.m. today all evacuation are lifted. Access to highway 422 North will be open at noon. Highway 62 and highway 422 remain closed to the public. Only residence of these areas will be allowed access. They must show proof of residency to enter. The area will remain closed to non-residents.

 Containing the fire requires diligent, labor intensive work. Working within the fires interior, crews will search for hot spots. These hot spots can be found in downed logs and tree stumps. Firefighters turn logs over and dig out stumps then spray them with water until the material is cold to the touch. Crews will work 25’ into the fire’s interior, building a crust around the fire to secure the perimeter.
 Safety remains our top priority. This includes trying to prevent COVID-19 infections. Personnel are following the Center for Disease Con-trol guidelines. This means limiting personal contact within fire camp and the community. The fire camp is closed to the public and media.
