COMING HOME AFTER A WILDFIRE…

Coming home after a wildfire can be difficult. The damage is often unknown until the homeowner returns days or weeks later. Before returning home ALWAYS check with officials before attempting to return to your home.

•Check grounds for hot spots, smoldering stumps, and vegetation.

•Check the roof and exterior areas for sparks or embers.

•Check the attic and throughout your house for any hidden burning sparks or embers.

•Check for fire damage to your home, turn off all appliances and make sure the meter is not damaged before turning on the main circuit breaker.

•Check the well or pump-house to ensure it is in working order.

•Contact 911 if any danger is perceived.

•Consult local experts on the best way to restore and plant your land with fire-safe landscaping.

Firefighters face challenges with steep and rugged terrain while weather has been in the 90’s with persistent hot and dry conditions.  In the evening, fire crews have been able to gain somewhat of a better hold on the fire line as winds die down.

Crews are still working tirelessly on gaining containment but currently it is at a zero percent.

There are 982 total personnel along with 23 crews, 7 helicopters, 117 engines, 36 bulldozers and 35 water tenders.

We are saddened by three civilians killed. We send our sincere sympathies to their families, friends and communities.
