Fire Summary:There will be a virtual community meeting via Facebook Live at 7pm to-night. Hear from incident leadership and community leaders on successes and resources available for support after the fire. This will be the final community meeting.
Firefighters worked throughout the day yesterday extinguishing heat next to the containment line. This is labor intensive work as they dig out stump holes and open up dozer berms to expose buried heat under the dirt. Last night crews continued to patrol for visible hot spots along Highway 97 and Highway 62. Crews worked through the night to extinguish what they could and marked areas they did not get to for the day shift.
It will be warmer and drier with light winds over the fire area today. The extended weather forecast shows an increasing chance of precipitation over the fire late this week.
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.
