Fire crews continue to make progress on containment lines around the Holy Fire, which is now at 22, 986 acres and 72 percent containment. Fire suppression efforts are focused on holding and strengthening containment line within El Cariso, Santiago Peak, and the northern edge of Anderson Canyon. Please note that flare-ups and smoking vegetation may remain visible to the surrounding communities but are within the fire perimeter.

The damage assessment team has completed its work and determined 12 single family residences were destroyed in Orange County and 6 single family residences were destroyed in Riverside County prior to August 13th.

Fire suppression repair groups will be identifying and repairing affected areas along the east and west sides of the fire. This is done to reduce erosion potential and cleanup damaged areas. Suppression repair efforts will include returning existing road systems back to original, pre-fire condition, cleaning plugged drainage features, and scattering cut brush across dozer lines to block and discourage illegal OHV activity.
