Fire Update 8/11/12
Incident: Pinyon Wildfire
The Pinyon fire is now 60% contained and is holding at 5,771 acres. Last night around 8pm, the fire experienced 35 mile an hour winds when the storm hit the area. The containment lines held but the fire did experience some flare ups. Engine crews worked through the night hitting hot spots and mopping up. Today fire fighters will focus on mopping up and securing fire lines. Moisture and hard work from the fire and National Guard resources have allowed some resources to begin to demo. Many of these resources are being reassigned to other fires.
