Weather Cooperating with Pine Gulch Fire Fighters

Today’s report shows 126,600 acres burned since July 31, compared to 124,900 acres yesterday, with 19% containment.  Light winds generally out of the north with a slight chance of afternoon thunderstorms.

The southern edge of the fire is about three miles north of the Little Bookcliffs WHR, according to the latest map.  The horses may be affected by smoke and ash—assuming they haven’t wandered off the reservation.

Crews have been removing fuel ahead of the fire to reduce its spread.
