Two Four Two Fire Daily Update - 9-18-2020

Two Four Two Fire Wildfire
News – 9/18/2020

 Fire Summary:Overnight, crews patrolled Highway 97 and Highway 62 to look for visible hot spots and extinguish any that were found. There has been heavy traffic through both Highway 97 and Highway 62 where crews are working. As a remind-er, for firefighter and public safety, if you are traveling through the fire area please slow down and use caution.
 The two fires outside the main fire, the Dam Fire and the Cattle fire, are fully contained and in patrol status. Those fires will continue to be monitored periodically through the next couple weeks.
 With the cooler weather expected today, it will help firefighters in their containment efforts. The northwest section of the fire continues to be the most difficult area. With slightly higher relative humidity today and a slight chance of rain, crews will be able to use that to their advantage. Moving into next week warm and dry conditions will be back to normal.
 Firefighter and public safety is the priority during this incident, including COVID mitigation. Personnel will be following Center for Disease Control guide-lines to limit personal interactions both within camp and with the local communi-ty. The incident command post and fire camp are closed to the public and media.
