The fire is 100% contained but citizens will continue to see
smoke, stumps burning and small flames. Fire crews are still
working within the fire area and citizens are advised to use
caution. The cause of fire has been determined to be a spark
from a blown steel-belted radial tire.

suppress the fire. Power washing is the most effective means of
removal (all water restrictions in the area have been lifted).
The retardant is non-toxic but should be removed as soon as
possible for ease of removal. For more information on the fire
