Fire fighters continue to make progress in extinguishing hot spots around the perimeter of the fire. Today they focused their attention on the first, tomorrow they will work in another fifty feet. Higher temperatures and lower humilities are forecasted in the coming days and could make the fire more active.
The Jefferson Sheriff’s office will lower the evacuation level from Level 3 (GO) to Level 2 (READY) status for the Three River’s Subdivision effective today at 6:00 p.m. Residents will be allowed to come and go but should remain aware that fire conditions can rapidly change. A public meeting is planned for Sunday, June 24 at 6:00 p.m. at the Chinook Village Store. Local residents are invited to hear from local officials to learn more about what they can do to protect their homes and lands.
