Ron Fryer says they should be in “good shape” by the end of Tuesday if the weather holds, and they could declare the fire contained by Friday.
About 200 firefighters are at the scene. The fire broke out Sunday evening and burned about 2 square miles of grass and brush and also destroyed two single-wide trailers.
Some residents of the McNeil Canyon were advised they might have to evacuate, but Fryer says that’s unlikely now.
