Dear friends and neighbors,
I wanted to give you a quick update on the Fawn Fire from the Sept 24 Morning Report: The fire is 5,850 acres with 10% containment.
Numerous local, state, and federal agencies have been deployed in response to the Fawn Fire. Fire patterns, weather, and traffic updates are changing frequently as firefighters continue to work to gain containment-please check with your local resources for the most current information.
