containment Total Personnel
Dotta 594 100%

Sugar 105,076 90%
Resources: 19 crews, 41 engines, 5 helicopters, 9 dozers, 21 water tenders
Current Situation: Movement of the fire is not expected outside its current perimeter. Crews are
making good progress finding and extinguishing areas of remaining heat that are within 100-300 feet
from the containment line. Where the fire is contained, crews are continuing fire-suppression repair
work as well as removing excess fire hose and equipment. As containment continues to increase,
firefighting resources are being reassigned to other incidents or returning home for rest before
mobilizing to other incidents. Smoke from the Dixie Fire continues to spread across large portions of
northeastern California and western Nevada.
The Dotta Fire—part of the Beckwourth Complex—is now 100 percent contained. Occasional smoke
might be visible from smoldering trees, but they are not close to the fireline and pose no threat to
containment lines. Firefighters will patrol the fire perimeter daily.
