Remarks
The fire did go to 100% containment March 23rd, but the local resources requested TAMFS to come back out the next day due to interior hot spots flaring up. Crews mitigated that heat and on March 25th,
containment went back to 100%. TAMFS received a request for assistance around 3:00 pm on March 29th because the fire had blown out of the containment lines. Decrease in containment is due to the extreme behavior observed today and red flag warning conditions that will likely continue through tomorrow.
