This morning's update on the Powerline Fire...
The Powerline Fire is 85% contained as of the end of the day yesterday. The fire is not likely to grow
significantly beyond its current size of 55,740 acres.

Today, crews will be working along the fire perimeter to repair and restore containment lines. Firefighters
along contained areas will be transitioning from digging containment line to building diversion bars,
repairing cut fences and restoring other impacted areas. Only about 6 of the original 62 miles of fire line
remain uncontained, so a few crews have been demobilized. The northeast segment of the perimeter still
has hotspots smoldering in heavier fuels and crews will be working throughout the day to secure it.

With the upcoming weekend, public recreation areas are expected to be full of visitors. Land managers
wish to remind the public to be cautious with campfires, vehicles, targets and any other possible firestarting
activities. ONE LESS SPARK… ONE LESS WILDFIRE.

Firefighting Resources:
Type 1 Crews (Hotshots)-8
Type 2 Crews-4
Engines/Tenders-28
Dozers-7
Helicopters-5
Total Personnel-464
