Remember the Lion Fire? Well it is still active and now at 90% containment. The cooling temps and now an expected storm should get the last 10% remaining. At least, that is what the officials are predicting. Here is the official announcement.
The Lion Fire grew to 18,900 acres, and is currently 90 percent contained. The fire continues to hold along containment lines with very few hot spots remaining in Leggett Creek near Forest Trail 33E01. Firefighters will continue to patrol the Fire by helicopter until winter weather arrives and the fire can be declared out. A storm is expected this weekend, which will likely extinguish all remaining hot spots.
