Sunday, August 26, 2018 Wildfire update:
The fire size and status remains unchanged. Ground crews continue to clear around the powerline poles to the south. Other crews working on the north flank to complete a fire break around the north tip of the fire. Current priorities on the South flank continue to be the power lines. Crews have gone in and brushed a significant perimeter around the hydro lines. This work will continue as possible.
Safety for all public and firefighting personnel remains a priority. The sprinkler system already in place will be maintained and expanded as necessary.
