Paola Ridge Fire Update 8-21-18 (Paola Ridge Fire Wildfire)

Wildland Fire Incidents - 6 hours 4 min ago
Paola Ridge Fire August 21, 2018 The Paola Ridge Fire is burning in the Flathead National Forest. Cooler temperatures and a small amount of rain allowed milder working conditions allowing crews to get a lot of work done. Yesterday, firefighters completed a shaded fuel break with heavy equipment from Dickey Creek Road #1639 to the local gravel pit. Hand crews dug line to tie into the heavy equipment line along the north side of the fire. Structure protection is complete with installation of pumps, water hoses and sprinklers for structures affected by the evacuation notice. The fire reached the toe of the slope and made runs towards Paola Creek. Additional resources are in place to adapt to changes as the fire moves down the hillside. Today firefighters will improve handline and heavy equipment line to strengthen already established fuel breaks. Heavy equipment work continues north to Paola Creek Road #1638 to complete the shaded fuel break in that area. Crews will assess...

DRONE SHUTS DOWN AIR OPERATIONS A THIRD TIME (Rattlesnake Creek Fire Wildfire)

Wildland Fire Incidents - 6 hours 12 min ago
Tuesday, August 21, 2018 9:00 a.m. Rattlesnake Creek Fire Information Phone Number (208) 495-6934 DRONE SHUTS DOWN AIR OPERATIONS A THIRD TIME COMMUNITY MEETING IN NEW MEADOWS TONIGHT Size: 8,135 acres (based on infrared data) Containment: 28% Cause: Human Location: West of Pinehurst and Gotzinger, Idaho Structures Destroyed: 0 Total Personnel: 408 including 6 hand crews, 20 engines, 3 dozers, 13 water tenders, 2 masticators and 3 helicopters Summary: Late yesterday, a third drone intrusion into the area under a Temporary Flight Restriction caused the helicopters that were delivering food for the firefighters on White Bird Ridge to return to the helibase. Drones create a serious safety hazard for aircraft, and air operations did not resume until the threat was resolved. One-tenth to two-tenths of an inch of rain fell on the fire area, raising fuel moisture substantially in the fine fuels and limiting fire behavior to backing, creeping and smoldering. When the storm front...

Whale Butte Fire Update 8-21-18 (Whale Butte Fire Wildfire)

Wildland Fire Incidents - 6 hours 19 min ago
Whale Butte FireAugust 21, 2018 Fire Summary: Whale Butte Fire – This lightning caused fire was also ignited on August 11 and is located in the Flathead National Forest. Due to improved smoke conditions yesterday, fire managers were able to take an aerial recon flight over the area. The fire area received some precipitation yesterday that helped temporarily slow fire progression. This type of rain event effects primarily light fuels, such as grass, and only slightly effects heavy fuels, such as the dead and downed timber that is primarily carrying this fire. For that reason, fire activity may increase as the area dries out again over the next two days following the brief rains. The fire continues to slowly back through surface fuels around the entire fire perimeter. Today, firefighters will continue to utilize heavy equipment to improve existing roads to be used as fuel breaks. They will also continue improving the fuel breaks along Whale Creek-Moose Creek Road #1671....

Mendocino Complex News Release 8.21.18 (Mendocino Complex Wildfire)

Wildland Fire Incidents - 6 hours 21 min ago
WILLOWS, Calif. — The Mendocino Complex (comprised of the Ranch and River fires) is being managed by the United States Department of Agriculture, Forest Service and CAL FIRE under unified command. Starting Wednesday, California Interagency Incident Management Team 3 will assume command of the western zone of the Ranch Fire. CAL FIRE Team 2 will continue to manage the eastern zone of the Ranch Fire. Ranch Fire: The Ranch Fire was under an inversion most of Monday which limited fire growth. Early in the evening the inversion began to lift and the fire became more active. The fire grew approximately 6,000 acres in the last twenty-four hours. The fire is now estimated at 355,612 acres and 67 percent contained. The decrease in containment is due to the fire’s movement to the east across the dozer line Sunday afternoon. This illustrates the difficult challenge that firefighters face when the fire aligns with fuels, topography and weather and spreads at extreme rates. On Monday, crews...

Coal Ridge Fire Update 8-21-18 (Coal Ridge Fire Wildfire)

Wildland Fire Incidents - 6 hours 25 min ago
Coal Ridge Fire August 21, 2018 Fire Summary: Coal Ridge Fire – Due to improved smoke conditions yesterday, fire managers were able to take an aerial recon flight over the fire area. Little fire growth has been observed over the last several days. The fire continues to smolder along the fire perimeter and it is expected to slowly move downslope towards Hay Creek to the north and Moran Creek to the south. The fire is primarily being carried by heavy dead and downed surface fuels. Firefighters have limited direct access to the fire’s edge due to difficult and hazardous terrain. Firefighters are continuing to create fuel breaks along Hay Creek Road #376 and Spruce Creek Road #1685. They are also working with heavy equipment to improve control lines along the North Fork Road and around the community of Polebridge. With the increased fire related traffic on the North Fork Road, the fire management team has coordinated with the Flathead County Roads Department to do maintenance work...
