Firefighters continued to make solid progress on the Bennion Creek Fire. Firefighting efforts were bolstered by additional crew and engine resources that began their work today. Three extra crews worked on the western edge of the fire, working to get that edge plumbed with water resources to provide support to that fire’s edge. Crews will continue to check for areas of heat along the fire’s perimeter. As they work towards containment, fire management officers are beginning to look at fire suppression repair.
Red Flag conditions will persist on the fire area through tonight. There will be a chance for dry thunderstorms and extreme fire weather tomorrow and Saturday.
