The Type III Incident Management Team will be transferring command of the Pipeline Complex to the local district as of 6:00 a.m. today. Excellent progress was made by firefighters yesterday, and rain was received in the area raising the fire from 95% to 100% containment.

The remaining visible smokes are in areas too difficult to access and won’t likely threaten the surrounding region. The firefighters have fully suppressed all heat, fire, and smoke that have the potential of escaping the fire perimeter. The local fire department and land owner will monitor the fire in case the situation changes.

Suppressing a fire takes group effort. It’s not just firefighters that make a difference, it’s the community as well. As the Pipeline Complex Incident Commander Steve Mullis stated, “The Team would like to sincerely thank the community and local agencies for their support. We could not have done this job without them.”
