The monsoons have arrived, and the Cedar Fire received rainfall on Sunday. The fire was 75% contained by this (Monday) morning. More rain is expected today and demobilization of forces is proceeding rapidly. While 554 firefighters are working on the fire this morning, only the Team itself will remain by Tuesday afternoon. The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) will assume command of the fire at 6 A.M. Tuesday.

Southwest Incident Management Team #2 (SWIMT2) extends our heartfelt appreciation to the White Mountain Apache Tribe, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the communities around the fire, and to our cooperators for the excellent working relationships, the support and encouragement, and the effective collaboration we experienced as we worked on the Cedar Fire.

This will be the final Cedar Fire update from SWIMT2. Thank you for welcoming us into your community.
