Click here to print this information
Yesterday, firefighters contained a 1,020 acre fire in the Chilcoot area.
The wildfire was caused by a lightning strike.
It caused a mandatory evacuation for Chilcoot south of SR-70 and voluntary evacuations for north of SR-70 and for the community of Vinton, all of which have since been lifted.
Strong rains knocked down the flames of the fire and helped firefighters to fully contain the blaze.
Luckily, no structures were lost during the fire.
