With 10 minutes left Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin's clever flick from a low Gylfi Sigurdsson cross was pushed out by Alisson and Tom Davies' follow-up shot hit the post. "That's what a world-class goalkeeper is, nothing to do for 90 minutes pretty much and then in one second you have to be there and he was there," Klopp told reporters. "It obviously saved us a point — it wasn't the first one. A difficult goalkeeper game." Liverpool need five more points to be sure of their first title of the Premier League era.

Klopp said defender Andy Robertson, who was left out of the squad against Everton due to a minor knock, would be involved. Liverpool will also assess James Milner and Joel Matip after the pair sustained injuries against Everton. CATALINA STATE PARK - A firefighter base camp is open for crews battling the Bighorn Fire.

Breakfast is served in the morning, a sack lunch is available before going up into the mountain and dinner is served from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. In addition to food service, the base camp is equipped with portable showers and camping tents. Masks are required in the camp at all time. Jamie Copel, worker at the base camp, is in charge of making sure firefighters have everything they need. "We go from everything to fire fighting tools to personal protective equipment and fire shirts," Copel said. Officials told News 4 Tucson, Crews work in scorching tempretures for sometimes 16 hours a day.

They also say morale is hig at the base camp. "Everyone is very positive and eager," Copel said. "The firefighters are ready to do anything and everything for their community." TUCSON, Ariz. — The Bighorn Fire spreads to more than 42,000 acres and is only 21% contained. Fire officials are now saying weather and topography aren't the only challenges they are dealing with.

Adam Jarrold, the public information officer for the Bighorn fire, says onlookers seem to be hindering containment efforts as well. "It's difficult for our firefighters to get in where they need to be. We understand that it's something people want to see, but when we get congestion in the areas it's just delaying them getting to their tasks," he told KGUN9. This doesn't just go for fire efforts on the ground. "If people gather around the dip-sights by the large helicopters gathering water, it could become a safety issue and pilots might abort that mission if they feel it's unsafe for that helicopter to be that close to people," he added. As night approaches, weather and fire behavior become the big challenge. "We get what we call our downslope winds. The winds kind of come off into the mountain down into town. So that's going to draw the fire down into the valley like Ventana Canyon," said Jarrold with the Golder Ranch Fire Department. This will also result in more smoke in the Tucson area, Oro Valley area, and the Catalina area in the mornings. As far as structure damage goes: "We still haven't gotten any reports of any structures lost. So the firefighters up at Mt. Lemmon, Ventana Canyon, Pima Canyon have worked very hard to keep this fire as far away from structures as they can," said Jarrold. Fire officials are also asking if you have a drone, that you keep it grounded--because if you fly, they can't.

The Bighorn Fire continued to burn in Sabino Canyon, Arizona, on Friday, June 19, as this footage shows, and by Saturday morning had scorched 42,798 acres and was 21 percent contained, according to Pima County Sheriff's Department. Local resident Drew Good, who captured this video, said, "I drove to Sabino Canyon to get a closer look, and as you got closer, there was a strong smell of burnt wood and fire. The smoke clouds were huge and you could see some ash in the air closer to the mountain." Crews battling the fire are continuing burnout operations in nearby Oracle to "buffer the community from the main fire," local media reported. Crews are continuing burnout operations south of Oracle expanding on work from Friday to buffer the community from the main fire. Evacuation notices remain in place for nearby Mt Lemmon, Soldier Camp, and Willow Canyon. A lightning strike ignited the fire on June 5, and it has continued to spread with the help of dry and windy conditions, according to a National Wildfire Coordinating Group report.
