Prison Fire Containment Now 50%
Incident: Prison Fire Wildfire
The Prison Fire, adjacent to Molino Basin in the Santa Catalina Mountains, remains at 240 acres burned. Rain monitors in the area indicate the fire received about .65 inches of rain last evening. It has not grown since yesterday evening’s 5 PM update and is now declared 50% contained. Two crews, a helicopter, and two water tenders remain assigned. Crews are mopping up and monitoring the perimeter. Full containment is anticipated in the next 24 to 48 hours. Catalina highway congestion from water tender activity should no longer be a problem.
