Harriette Fire Update 7-31-19 – Fire Now 75% Contained

Fire crews and aviation resources continue to make good progress today on the Harriette Fire. The fire is currently holding at 9 acres, and has reached 75% containment. Although the flanks of the fire are secure, they continue to hold heat. Snags along with steep and rocky terrain have made access difficult for firefighters in those areas. The fire will be staffed overnight as crews continue to mop-up the interior and strengthen containment lines around the fire.
