Pipeline Fire Grows To Over 20,000 Acres With Over 600 Firefighters Now Working The Fire

The Pipeline Fire has burned 20,178 acres, but so far it has only destroyed one structure with no containment. Fire officials held the first briefing on the Pipeline Fire Monday. They said there are over 600 firefighters now working the fire, with more on the way. A Type-2 team will take over command of the fire sometime today, with a Type 1 team taking over sometime Wednesday. Fire officials say aircraft return to the fire as winds are forecast to be lighter. They also plan to spend more time working on protecting tribal areas and monuments. Officials say Timberline and the Doney Park area isn’t out of the woods regarding the fire just yet and the inner basin remains a fire threat. Crews Sunday night conducted burn out operations on the south end of the fire, which helped those areas Monday as winds increased. Nearly 22-hundred homes have been put in “Go” status so far on the fire.
