Yesterday the crews continued to mop up and improve lines in the Johnson and Ridge/Heights Fires. A small rollout occurred last night in the Johnson Fire but crews picked it up right away. Today, mop up efforts will continue. Central Coast Interagency Incident Management Team 7 will be transitioning to a Type 3 organization tomorrow. This will be the last update that this team will release. Team 7 would like to thank this community for the consideration and friendliness you have shown during our stay.
