Saturday Skates Fire Update

1 Comment

Not much knew information, and, unfortunately, no new pictures. However, here’s the latest fact sheet (Skates Fire Fact Sheet 6-17-06)from the Forest Service regarding the fire. Highlights:

  • 8,500 acres burned
  • Residents were allowed to return to their homes briefly
  • 30% of the fire was contained (as of Saturday morning)
  • 364 personnel (roughly the same number as Thursday) are assigned, with a Type 1 incident management team still en route

I took the day off after I attended the Chicano Institute at WNMU this morning. I’ll be heading out for more fire information tomorrow (Sunday). Check in tomorrow night, and Monday morning, for the latest info.
