Incident Final Update Sixty Fire



McCall – The Sixty Fire burning near Cascade is now 100% contained.  The evacuation notice has been lifted.

Fire officials said, “There was an estimated 15K-20K gallons of water used yesterday.  Yesterday was all about getting boots on the ground, utilizing the water and hand tools to mix and mop everything up”.

For the next several days, crews will continue to patrol until it is safely called out. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The fire was 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.



This is the final update.
