The Lick Fire is now estimated to be 90 acres in size and 10% contained. Firefighters were successful in constructing containment lines from Forest Road 1040 to Abney Butte and have reinforced that line with fire retardant this afternoon. The Hello Fire is now estimated to be 230 acres and is 5% contained.
As the weekend approaches our firefighting personnel would like to caution travelers on the Upper Applegate River Road to drive carefully due to the amount of firefighting vehicles and aircraft in the area. We appreciate the public’s support of our efforts and for allowing us to do our job safely.
