    SQF Complex incident update, Date: 11/23/2020

    Size: 174,178 Acres
    Contained: 90%


    Containment of the SQF Complex has increased to 90% for the portion of the fire managed by the Sequoia National Forest. Due to limited access to the fires edge in remote locations, full containment is not expected until it can be assessed on the ground. Most uncontained lines are at higher elevations where natural barriers have stopped the spread, and winter conditions will likely extinguish any remaining hot spots.  

    Currently, heavy equipment work is nearing completion due to winter-time conditions. Much work is left to be done on fire suppression repair; heavy equipment is anticipated to return in the spring to continue this effort. Crews are making good progress on road-side chipping, this work will last all winter as conditions allow.  

    Assigned fire resources are responding to reported hot spots that surface in the Castle Fire as well as new fires reported nearby.  Air resources are available as necessary to support the incident. 

    An Interagency Emergency Task Force is working on preparations by establishing trigger points for flash floods and debris flow, and cleaning debris from culverts and drains to minimize impacts.
