Hirz Fire AM Update 9-7-18 (Hirz Fire Wildfire)

Wildland Fire Incidents - Fri, 09/07/2018 - 12:16
Current Situation: The Hirz Fire continues to hold within its perimeter with no new growth. Control lines are established around the entire fire perimeter and crews have increased containment to 80 percent. Firefighters are continuing to hold the northeast corner of the fire along Squaw Valley Creek to ensure that the fire backs down fully into the control lines without threat of crossing the lines. Crews will continue to mopup around the fire perimeter and work to increase containment. Suppression repair and rehabilitation have now become a large portion of the operations on the Hirz Fire. Resource advisors from the Shasta-Trinity National Forest have been working directly with crews to ensure proper repairs are made to areas affected by suppression efforts. As the fire suppression needs have decreased, resources and equipment have been removed off the fireline and many of these resources have been assigned to the Delta Fire. Closures and Evacuations: To provide for public safety...
