Yesterday’s Operational Shift

  • The fire stayed in the current footprint despite the wind event. Containment on the north and east perimeter of the fire was achieved.
  • On the south and west perimeter, fire crews used Type 1 and Type 3 helicopters to control pockets of heat from the fire perimeter inward to increase depth and secure fire lines.
  • Fire crews, engines, air tankers and dozers made good progress with direct suppression tactics, building and securing fire line along the fire perimeter

 Today’s Operational Expectations

  • Community and firefighter safety are top priorities for both the Incident Management Team and the Bureau of Land Management
  • On the south and west edge of the fire, crews will continue to mop-up pockets of heat while strengthening the fireline
  • Some fire resources and equipment will be released from the Flatt Fire to assist with other emerging large fires in the state of Utah
