Significant Events
Fire Suppression Repair is continuing to be implemented to limit erosion potential on firelines, staging areas, and drop points. Roads that were used as fireline or impacted by the increased use during suppression actions will be rehabilitated. The Burned Area Emergency Response team has begun to look at risks to human infrastructure and cultural and natural resources both within and adjacent to the Kerlin Fire. A final BAER analysis is expected by late-September.
