We would once again like to thank all role players for their support. We would not have been able to contain this wildfire without all your support - be it donations, volunteering, reports and calls to assist us with responses.

Many of the firefighters work more than 12 hours a day to contain fires - we must not forget the willpower, perseverance and selfless efforts of fire fighters who serve to protect our communities and the environment.
