Dodge Springs Fire Mostly Contained
The Dodge Springs Fire is now almost totally contained and most of the firefighting resources are being sent home or released to other fires today and tomorrow. Containment went up to 98% Thursday and while some hot spots may continue to smolder, fire managers say it would take many days of continuous sunny weather bring it back to life. The hot spots that have been found are inside the perimeter and not a threat to containment. Showers are in the forecast again today. One hot shot crew will remain to work on the fire and monitor conditions this weekend and into next week. In addition to completing containment, the crews will work to repair damage to the land caused during the initial firefight last week.
