Fire crews expected to meet mop-up standards by the end of shift Sunday. These standards include having all spot fires lined and secured, along with having a 300 foot buffer area around the perimeter line. Snags that were within two tree lengths of the control lines will have been removed.

 

On Friday, one of the firefighters was struck on the shoulder by a one inch diameter, two foot long piece from the top of a tree. The tree branch that hit the firefighter fell from the top of a tree that was struck by another tree falling as it was cut. The firefighter was transported from the line to the Incident Command Post where he was examined in the medical unit. As a precaution, he was transported to the Redmond hospital for x-rays. No serious injuries were found, and the firefighter was released and authorized to work light duty as he recovers.

 

As the Labor Day weekend comes to a close Monday, drivers are reminded that there will be heavy traffic on Highway 26 that fire crews must also navigate as they depart and return to fire camp. Drivers should be extra cautious at these busy intersections.
