Evans Road Fire
Drying trends could cause flare-ups on the Evans Road Fire.  "Those rains over the past two weeks have helped immensely," commented District Fire Management Officer Tom Crews.  "However, I remain cautious as we are in a drying trend and may see a resurgence of ground fire surfacing again."
