Flightline activity, to include all flying operations, was stopped and personnel evacuated from flightline buildings as the fire approached the base. A building containing navigation equipment on the airfield may have sustained some minor damage. No other damage was reported. The fire burned about 3,000 acres, including five acres on the northwest corner of the base. (
