A wildfire near U. S. 26 milepost 91 is partially contained. Fire season is upon us, careful when traveling though our dry summer homelands. The Warm Springs CoVID-19 Response team is concerned about the possible air pollution a fire brings with it which would add more danger for people with preexisting
breathing issues.

The Boil Water Notice still in effect for Warm Springs Agency area.
