Fire update 10:30 a.m. May 10

Weather has helped slow the fire’s growth in the past two days and allowed crews to establish and reinforce perimeter control in certain areas.

Additional resources have been brought in to give some much needed rest to local fire crews who have been working on this incident since May 3.

Utility providers are working in the community and affected area to protect and maintain critical infrastructure. The majority of the evacuation area has retained power service with some brief and intermittent power outages.

Additional ground resources to bolster fire suppression efforts on the ground have been requested and are expected to arrive in the coming days. The fire continues to be classified as out of control. Crews need a couple more days of similar weather to increase perimeter control and we should be able to provide a more detailed update for you on Friday.
