Incident Update Sixty Fire



McCall – The Sixty Fire burning near Cascade is now 60% contained.  The fire is approximately 6.6 acres and has had minimal growth. There is a line around the fire, but the edge is not secure yet, in the suspected origin area. That area remains “untouched” until the investigation is complete.

There are heavy fuels in the drainage, so we are going to be cautious and not call it fully contained until tomorrow.  Officials are happy with the progress. Tomorrow, Fire officials from SITPA Forest Protective District are planning on downsizing to one crew, two engines and a water tender.

The fire is burning near the Timber Rim subdivision South of Sixty lane to the east, north of Round Valley Rd.


Fire officials remind citizens to never fly drones near wildfires. When your drone is in the air, our aircraft must be grounded, putting the lives of firefighters at risk.
