Memaloose Park Fire Almost 100% Contained

Fire crews are getting close to 100% containment on the Memaloose Park Fire. Incident Commander Kyle Nairns thinks they will reach that goal by end of shift today. The final mapping shows the fire at 74 acres. A drone was used this morning to survey the fire area and find hot spots.

The westbound Memaloose Rest Area reopened this morning after repairs were completed. Memaloose Park is also open to visitors.

The fire was human caused and the investigation continues.
