Big “win” for firefighters today was holding incident 423 east of Meissner Sno-park on the @DesNatlForest to 1.6 acres. This has been lined and has a hose lay around it for firefighters to begin mopping up. They’ll work through the night to seek and extinguish spot fires as well. pic.twitter.com/vbs2xRT7fx
