After 37 hours of fire watch, fire control and rotating crews on scene, all of the RVFD crews are back in service. RVFD said people nearby can expect to see a lot of steam due to the cool temperature and the heat from the tanks.

The RVFD would like to thank all those that came out to help, from fire crews from nearby towns to those that provided food and drinks.
