Bear Fire Update – 6.16.2021
4 miles NW of Helper, Utah
The Bear Fire remained relatively inactive overnight. All road closures and evacuations have been lifted, including on the Hardscrabble and Spring Canyon Roads. Tonight will be the last night that the fire is staffed with a night shift.
The weather continues to be hot and dry. Cloud cover in the fire area might result in temperatures a few degrees lower than the past few days, but they are still considerably higher than normal. Winds will remain relatively light.
Conditions will change over the next few days, bringing in the chance for dry lightning and outflow winds.
Priorities today include continuing to button up line along Hardscrabble Road and in between Sowbelly and Robinson Gulches to make sure that any remaining heat stays checked high on the ridgelines.
Crews will also mop up along the western side of the fire, checking carefully to make sure that there is no heat that could threaten the few perimeter.
