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

Wildland Fire Incidents - 6 hours 58 min ago
Howe Ridge FireAugust 21, 2018Yesterday’s weather system brought variable showers and cooler temperatures which moderated fire behavior and aided in firefighting efforts. However, gusty conditions caused the fire to grow on the southwestern flank. Erratic winds are expected to continue as a cold front passes through the area. Due to better visibility yesterday, air operations were able to aid in suppression efforts. CL-215 “Super Scoopers” and helicopters continued to drop water near the southwestern flank of the fire. High volume pumps and sprinklers will be installed at Lake McDonald Lodge. Firefighters will continue to fortify containment lines on the southwest flank of the fire and protect structures at the Fish Creek Campground as well as patrol and protect structures on the North Lake McDonald Road. On the northeastern flank, north of Lake McDonald, firefighters will continue to utilize pumps and hose lays to aid in suppression efforts and limit fire spread towards the...

August 21 Daily Update for Rabbit Foot Fire (Rabbit Foot Fire Wildfire)

Wildland Fire Incidents - 7 hours 8 min ago
Summary: Firefighter engagement on the fire was limited yesterday because of predicted extreme weather and persistent radio communication problems. Technical experts tested the entire system without a definitive solution and are planning a complete replacement this morning. Fire behavior was minimal due to cooler temperatures, and higher fuel moistures. The widespread inclement weather did not materialize to the predicted levels with precipitation locally spotty and in smaller amounts. Thunderstorms did materialize producing outflow winds and lightning strikes. At this point, the majority of indirect line has been completed due to the hard work of the firefighters and favorable weather conditions. Firefighters are working closely with Resource Advisors to efficiently fortify lines to conduct burn operations if possible. Planned contingency lines are being reassessed as the fire stalls due to the weather. A full suppression strategy and indirect tactics are the best options for...

There was no night shift last night due to severe weather conditions on the fireline. Approximately ¾” wetting rain fell across the fires reducing the threat of...

Tenmile Fire and Sterling Complex Fire Update (Tenmile Fire Wildfire)

Wildland Fire Incidents - 7 hours 28 min ago
Summary: Yesterday afternoon, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office issued mandatory and pre-evacuation notices as a result of increased fire activity occurring on the nearby Gold Hill Fire. To meet one of their critical needs, the Sterling Complex is loaning an experienced hand crew to the Gold Hill Fire that will help them protect structures that fire is threatening. While the temporary loss of the crew drops the capacity of the Sterling Complex to safely perform firing operations that would improve containment efforts, the crew is supporting a higher emerging need. Cooler weather setting in is not lifting or mixing hazy conditions, keeping fire behavior subdued. This is allowing firefighters to catch small spot fires that are occurring near unburned areas of the containment lines. Heavy equipment remains a key tool firefighters are relying on to contain the spot fires. Weather: A passing frontal cold passage brought rain and cooler conditions Monday that will carry over today....

Coal Hollow Fire Information Daily Update 8/21/18 (Coal Hollow Fire Wildfire)

Wildland Fire Incidents - 7 hours 29 min ago
August 21, 2018, 8 a.m.The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest closure orders and the pre-evacuation orders of Zones 2 and 15, north of Hwy 6, have been lifted. On the Manti-La Sal National Forest south of Hwy 6, all evacuation orders and National Forest closures remain in effect today. Forest officials plan to increase the closure order on the west side of the Lake Fork Road as the fire slowly moves into that area as a precautionary measure.Current Situation: Rain showers moved into the Great Basin area raising the relative humidity. This has proved beneficial in slowing the progression of the fire. Monday’s high relative humidity allowed firefighters to improve lines and hold containment to 47%. The modest increase in acreage has come largely from the slop-over along the southeastern perimeter of the fire in Division R. Aircraft support in critical areas, and the removal of fuels through these firing operations, are aiding in firefighting success. Firefighters are continuing to...
