Lone Fire: Moving toward full containment


ALTURAS, Calif.— Fire behavior has been minimal on the Lone Fire allowing firefighters to make good progress toward full containment. Today firefighters will continue to patrol the fire area, extinguish hot spots and improve containment line.

Though temperatures have decreased and relative humidity has increased, the potential for spot fires across the line still exists. The primary concern is that higher winds accompanying a low pressure system may blow embers across the line into unburned vegetation. Resources are available for a rapid attack should spot fires occur.

The fire is projected to be fully contained Sept. 12, 2019.


Firefighters will continue patrolling and reinforcing containment line by extinguishing any hot spots found near the line. Minimal fire behavior will give firefighters an opportunity to improve on the work accomplished today.

Weather concerns
Weather conditions are improving with cooler temperatures and higher relative humidity.
