EUCRFPD and Helix Fire had 6 units respond, Milton Freewater Rural arrived with 6 units, ODF brought 2 Type 6 vehicles and BIA brought a Type 6.
About 40 acres of tall grass and stubble was burned.
Working together on all these fires has given us a good rapport with all surrounding agencies. When we need help, they come out of the woodwork and when they need help, we do our best to assist in any way we are capable of.
This fire is in mop up stage which means you'll be able to see orange glows up on the hillside. We have units watching the fire tonight in case something flares back up.
