Fire Update, July 28
Incident: Ridge Fire Wildfire
Fire Situation: Cooler, more humid weather helped firefighters achieve complete containment on the southwestern division of the fire referred to as “Zulu”. The crews working on Zulu were taken to the base camp where they had their first hot meal in seven days. The other ten crews are still camped on the fire line and also had their first hot meal delivered since they started working the fire last Friday.
Fire activity continues to diminish on the east side where hose-lay from 8-Mile Creek has been routed to hotspots. The northern end of the fire continues to smolder and torch in the Cat Lakes area where hotshot crews are working toward containment.
