The Assayii Lake Fire containment is now at 98% and is estimated at 14,712 acres. Management of the fire will be returned back to the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) Navajo Fire Management Program on Tuesday morning, 6:00 a.m., July 1, 2014.
After containing the fire within a perimeter of fire line, the next step for firefighter will be to get the fire under control. Control means the fire is dead out -- no hot spots, no floating embers, nothing that will flare up again even if winds pick up. The BIA Navajo Fire staff will be working in the next days to control the fire.
