Alpine Fire Contained

The Alpine Lake Fire is now 100% contained!  Firefighters are leaving by  the bus load and things are quieting down at the end of the Trail.  The almost 2" of rain we received along with 2 weeks of firefighting efforts have,  for the most part, put the fire out. The perimeter of the fire is secure, however, some sprinklers will be left on the critical fire lines.   Today we have been experiencing wind gusts of 10-20 mph. and some of the ridges in the interior of the fire have come to life with smoke.  These areas will be monitored but they will not pose a threat due to their location.  There are some great fire photos of the aircraft and personnel at this site.
