“Yesterday, our hard-working fire crews successfully put hand and saw line around the perimeter of the fire and snuffed out smokes in the fire interior,” stated Bill Jackson, District Ranger, in a statement. “Crews remaining on the fire today will focus efforts on identifying hot spots and mopping up these areas with dirt and water. After mop-up and fireline rehabilitation is complete our local crews will continue to monitor the affected area until a season-ending moisture event happens and the fire can be declared officially out.”
