As the post states, this is “the less glamorous side of wildland firefighting but by no means any less crucial than the fast-moving, active flame, initial attack phase”.

The Tannerite Fire is now 70% contained. Over 1,300 acres burned in the human-caused fire that started last Saturday. Last night’s post also noted Burnt Lake Road will be re-opened Friday morning.
