Two Four Two Fire Daily Update - 9-17-2020

Two Four Two Fire Wildfire
News – 9/17/2020

 Fire Summary:There is another Red Flag warning from 2pm to 8pm over the fire area today. Crews have used the past few days to continue to strengthen the fire lines against any weather event. A slight chance of light rain is forecast for the fire area tonight which will help firefighters in their con-tainment efforts.
 The two small fires the Team responded to yesterday are outside the main fire area, are contained, and in mop up status. The Dam Fire is located near Chiloquin Ridge and is two acres. The Cattle Fire is located near the Rainbow Park area and is 20 acres. These are not spot fires from the Two Four Two fire. The cause of these fires is under investigation.
 Crews will continue to work on strengthening containment lines around the fire. The west side of the fire, west of Hwy 62 near the Agency Creek area, has the most heat. Eliminating hot spots will continue to be a goal until the fire is 100% contained.
 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.
