Sheriff Mascher met with Fire Incident Commanders this morning and learned that back burning operations are ongoing in an effort to assure a margin of protection from fire for the Walker and Potato Patch areas. As a result, it is not expected those evacuations will be lifted today, but 'potentially' tomorrow. Again, fire behavior will dictate the final decision but crews are doing an amazing job in this endeavor.
All cooperators involved in the Goodwin Fire truly appreciate the community cooperation and support, and understand the desire of residents to get back in their homes. Please remember this fire-fighting strategy is critical to continued success and the goal of full containment.
