Crews are starting to pack up as the Karney Fire nears 80 percent containment. An update this morning reported that 314 crew members are still working on the fire, which is now at 440 acres. Firefighters are expected to spend today tending to hotspots and hauling away any equipment no longer needed to fight the fire.
