Storm Hill Fire Update - Monday 4/25, 2016 at 4:20 PM

  • The Storm Hill fire is now 100% contained.  When a fire is referred to as contained, it means a line is constructed around the fire perimeter, firefighters are working to extinguish or remove burning material near containment lines, and the spread is stopped. 
    • Firefighters expect the line to hold with minimal firefighter intervention.  Today's plan to increase the security patrol fireline to 60 feet was successful.  
  • This fire will transfer from a Type 3 incident to a Type 4 - which indicates that the complexity of this incident has lessened.  
  • Cause remains under investigation.
