Recent rain kept moisture over the fire area helping firefighters hold containment lines and perform mop up and suppression repair activities throughout the night. The Damage Inspection teams are continuing their assessments and the structure totals will be reflected as the teams confirm their findings. Fire personnel will begin to leave the area and prepare for the forecasted weather even in other parts of the State.
