With the growth of the Dixie Fire leveling out around 963,000 acres, firefighters have switched their response to fire. Firefighters have switched from the previously used fire suppression techniques to suppression repair procedures.[source] This means the firefighting crews are now attempting to repair any existing damage caused by firefighting efforts that may lead to future soil erosion or other issues.
From this, we can surmise that firefighting crews feel that end of the Dixie Fire is near. With wetter weather potentially replacing dry, high winds, we may be true sooner than later.
Now Is The Time To Look Towards The Future
With the Dixie Fire largely under control, now is time to start looking toward what comes next. With the confirmation of PG&E’s involvement in starting the Dixie Fire, victims need to start considering their legal avenues against the company.[source] As in the past, victims can expect the company to shirk responsibility for this tragedy in an effort to avoid consequences. In fact, PG&E currently claims that the tree that started the fire fell over due to outside intervention.[source]
