HORSE CANYON FIRE UPDATE Monday, July 2, 8:00 am

Summary: Rough, rocky terrain and windy conditions were hampering suppression
 efforts for the fire resources. Aerial resources (helicopters and air tankers) were assisting ground resources with bucket drops and retardant along the fire perimeter to keep the fire from crossing containment lines. The crews utilized existing roads and trails trying to hold the fire in check. Multiple burnout operations were completed to tie in and strengthen containment lines. Structure protection was taken around Putman cabin late yesterday afternoon to preserve the historical cabin. Additional resources arrived on the fire last night and will continue to arrive today. A Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) is in place over the fire with a 7 mile radius and a 10,500 foot ceiling. A public meeting was held at 7:00 PM last night at the Queen Volunteer Fire Department, and a public meeting will be held tonight.
