Firefighters Continue to Make Great Progress

Firefighting efforts continue to go well this afternoon at #SunshineFire. Below are some pictures from earlier this afternoon from a reconnaissance flight over the fire by incident managers. In the pictures you’ll be able to see the fire retardant lines that were dropped by the fixed-wing aircraft during yesterday’s suppression efforts, as well as the the burn scar area.

The fire is at 80% containment, but fire crews continue to make great progress. The initial assessment by fire management is that the burn scar looks good and that the area will recover well, which is good for the forest and the ecosystem
