Two Four Two Fire Daily Update 9-16-2020

Two Four Two Fire Wildfire
News – 9/16/2020

 Fire Summary:There is a Red Flag Warning for our area for gusty winds and low relative humidity today. The weather continues to be dry and we are ex-pecting to see gusts up to 20 mph today. In anticipation of the winds, crews continue working hard to eliminate hot spots along the perimeter of the fire.
 Yesterday there were two new fire starts within the surrounding area of the Two Four Two Fire. The Cattle Fire is east of the Two Four Two Fire in the Pine Ridge Estates. It burned in grass and grew to 5 acres. The second start, named the Dam Fire, was off of Twin Rivers Road. That fire grew to 2.25 acres. Multiple engines were pulled from the Two Four Two Fire line to assist Chiloquin Fire Department and local resources with these new fires. Crews will continue mop up operations and patrol both of these fires today. Both fires are under investigation.
 Highway 97 will have areas of traffic control points so crews can fall hazard trees. The highway will remain open during this work.
 Safety remains our top priority. This includes trying to prevent COVID-19 infections. Personnel are following the Center for Disease Con-trol guidelines. We continue to limit personal contact within fire camp and the community. The fire camp continues to be closed to the public and media.
