Pine Gulch Fire Approaching Little Bookcliffs WHR

The map posted this morning suggests the fire has made an end run around a previously burned area, at the Division B/A break (denoted by back-to-back parentheses in the following image), and is now about a mile from the north end of the WHR.

Today’s report does not acknowledge this.

Winds will be out of the north this afternoon with gusts to 14 mph.  Rain showers are in the forecast for next week.

The area burned since July 31 has increased to approximately 129,700 acres, up from 126,600 acres yesterday.  Containment holding at 19%.

Reports at InciWeb have not indicated if the lands surrounding the WHR are subject to permitted livestock grazing.

NOTE: The previously burned area, from the Hunter Fire, is mentioned at 1:35 in this briefing from August 18.
