Firefighters Survey Damage from American Fire

Posted: Updated:

The American Fire has been fully contained, but fire crews are still on scene to survey the damage done by the wildfire, and put out any recurring hot spots.

A Burned Area Emergency Response team has been called in to start identifying areas in need of repair. So far, they've identified two bridges in the area that have been burned, and are working to assess the repairs needed to make sure they remain safe for hikers in the area.

In total, the American Fire burned 27,440 acres of land. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but investigators have said they suspect it was human caused.
