Two Four Two Fire Daily Update - 9-22-2020

Two Four Two Fire Wildfire
News – 9/22/2020

 Fire Summary:Last night an infrared flight flew over the fire to identify any areas of heat near the perimeter of the fire. Any identified hot spots will be taken care of today before crews are demobilized at the end of their shifts.
 There are videos by Operation Section Chief, John Pellissier, flying over the fire on the Two Four Two Fire Facebook page. These videos highlight the work that has been done on the fire. No account is required to view the videos.
 Today is the last day Oregon Department of Forestry Incident Manage-ment Team #2 will be in command of the fire. Transition to a local Type 4 team will happen at 8:00am tomorrow morning. The objectives for the Type 4 team remain the same. The crews will continue mop up where it warrants and continue suppression repair. The local team will staff the fire with multiple engines, water tenders and dozers through the week. ODF and USFS are expecting the fire to be 100% contained by the end of shift on Friday.
 This will be the final fire update from Team 2. The incident management team would like to thank the cooperators and public for working together on this fire. Without local resources and support from the community our team would not have been as successful.
 Firefighter and public safety is the top priority during this incident, including COVID mitigation. Personnel will be following Center for Disease Control guidelines to limit personal interactions both within camp and with the local com-munity. The incident command post and fire camp are closed to the public and media.
