It is also being reported that the fire was caused by “target shooting” which likely set off a spark in a dry area causing a fire to start. No further details were released.
All evacuation orders and the remaining road closure have been lifted.
Firefighters continue mopping up inside the fire containment lines. Demobilization of resources will continue. Fire resources are still in the communities so residents need to be aware and use caution when driving in the fire area.
