Today, fire crews say they will make use of the cooler temperatures and cloudy weather, which is expected to last until Wednesday. Officials want the public to know that fire apparatus and crews will be in the area for several weeks potentially. Since the area was burned by a wildfire, parts of it will remain hazardous for some time. When driving to your property, officials suggest being mindful of hazards.
