Tres Lagunas Fire Update
- Engines and water tenders must be decontaminated before leaving the fire
PECOS—Firefighters on the Tres Lagunas Fire are now ramping down their fire suppression efforts and transitioning to “mop up” operations.
But before being released from the fire, all water handling equipment, such as engines and water tenders, must be decontaminated.
“The decontamination process is not standard procedure, but it is becoming more common as we travel from fire to fire,”
