Rolling Pines Fire Update
January 22, 2022
7:30 pm
Size: 812 acres
Containment: 95%
Date Started: January 18, 2022 
Cause: Under Investigation 

Resources have continued to patrol and improve containment lines today. All 9 miles of containment line have been secured at this time. Fire behavior remains low, with scattered heavy down wooden material smoldering. Today an infrared drone was utilized to guide personnel to heat sources along the lines and finish securing the fire perimeter. Crews will be back in the morning to continue checking heat inside the lines and away from the fire edge. These areas internal of the perimeter may smoke for the next few days as crews work on them. Tomorrow morning there will be a helicopter flight to get an aerial view of the fire and look for any potential challenges to containment.
 Winds are expected to remain below 10 mph through the evening, with moderate humidity recovery overnight. Leadership is continuing to make tactical decisions keeping weather predictions in mind.
