The fire is expected to be 100 percent contained by 6 p.m. and moved to a patrol status. This means that during the following days and weeks, fire officials will patrol the area to finish clean up and prevent the fire from re-igniting.

Akins said that 561 personnel are still on scene, but they are in the process of demobilization and it is anticipated that between 100 and 50 personnel will remain on scene by 6 p.m.

The cost of the fire is estimated at $22,400,000. Thirty homes and 28 outbuildings were destroyed and four other structures damaged.

Nine firefighters reported minor injuries. Akins said that they were typical injuries such as falls, cuts and bruises, dehydration and other heat-related problems.

A community recovery workshop is planned for Tuesday from 3 to 8 p.m. at the Hughes-Elizabeth Lakes Union Elementary School District on Lake Elizabeth Road in the Lake Hughes community.

Twenty-four agencies will be present at the workshop, which is intended to be a one-stop shop for residents, with information about insurance companies and water quality, among other things.

As cleanup progresses, Akins encourages residents to call 911 if they see smoke near the perimeter of the fire.
