Situation Summary

The fire is located above Helltown Rd., west of Centerville Rd. and east of Butte Creek. As predicted the fire will be contained at 6:00 pm this evening. Fire personnel will continue to mop up hot spots in the difficult and dangerous terrain for several days until control of the fire is attained. Because of this we ask those driving in the area to remain vigilant and drive slowly and safely because of the heavy fire resource traffic on the narrow roads. If an emergency develops around a residence within the fire area call 911 and fire resources will be directed to that incident.
