Schultz Fire Update

Thursday there was a back burn in the fire area by the firefighters and hot shots, that caused a new round of smoke, but inevitably helped with the efforts. As of today (one week later), the fire has burned 15,075 acres and is 55% contained. That is amazing! In another week, it should all be contained. The authorities know that the Schultz fire was caused by a campfire that was abandoned without being properly extinguished in the area of Schultz Tank, Little Elden Trail, and Forest Road 420, they do not know who it is. This photo was taken Thursday during the back burn.

Check out more photos of smoke.
