The Albany County Sheriff’s Office shared today, September 30th, that damage assessments were made in the lower Keystone, Lake Creek and Foxborough areas impacted by the Mullen Fire.
38 property owners have lost a total of 29 homes and 31 outbuildings, according to the ACSO report. “On behalf of everyone working this fire, our thoughts go out to those who lost homes and property.”
The latest update on InciWeb at 8:50 am today, September 30th says, “This morning, the size of the Mullen Fire is 96,757 acres, based on an infrared measurement after midnight. As of last night, 887 personnel are now working to defend homes in and near the fire footprint, and more help continues to arrive. Firefighters worked through the night to aggressively defend structures.”
“As the fire progresses, if there is further damage to private property, additional assessments and notifications will be made,” said the ACSO. “We have received a lot of questions of when owners will be allowed to go see their property. Currently, it’s still too dangerous for limited re-entry. When it’s safe to do so we will work on setting up a limited re-entry.”
