The Chateau Fire is now 15 percent contained. Due to additional resources from many of our neighboring counties and fire departments, major progress was made today.
In addition to the spot fire along Highland Meadows Drive, the fire was active within Division B late this afternoon. Firefighters were able to respond to both areas quickly and no issues are anticipated. Four single engine air tankers made multiple drops on the fire. Two Type I Helicopters spent most of the day on the Chateau Fire cooling the fire edge, allowing handcrews to establish direct handline and secure existing line. Crews continued mopping-up and securing structures. There were no accidents or injuries and over 200 personnel are currently working on the fire.
