Pine Gulch Fire Smoldering

Today’s report said that unburned fuels in the interior may smolder until rain or snow put the fire completely out.  This may not happen until mid-September, October, or even as late as November.

The latest map shows hot spots on the south and west sides but containment is holding at 77%.  Total area burned is 139,000 acres.

Management teams are transitioning and the number of persons assigned to the incident is declining.

The night shift is no longer needed according to today’s briefing.

Three cheers for our police officers, fire fighters and emergency personnel!
