Color Country IMT 2 has transitioned management of the Dalton Wash Fire to the Bureau of Land Management’s Color Country Paria Fire and Aviation Management Unit last night.
Wildland fire resources on the Dalton Wash Fire will continue patrolling and monitoring containment lines ensuring all pockets of heat near the fires edge have been extinguished and conduct rehab work. Most fire resources have been released to support other wildfires.
Stage 1 fire restrictions are in effect and fire danger remains very high across southern Utah, recreators are urged to use extreme caution as they recreate on state and public lands.
This will be the last release for the Dalton Draw Fire.
