16 miles northwest of Meeker, CO
40.192 latitude, -108.201 longitude
Short grass, 1 foot Oak brush, 6 feet Sage brush, 2 feet
Primary carriers include sparse sage, grass valley bottoms, mature stands, 6 foot sage, dense stands of Gambel Oak, acting more like a 10-15 ft brush stand. Pinyon-Juniper with sage/grass understory
Cumulus development across the fire area resulted in a continuation of minimal fire activity. Residual fire activity in interior unburned fuels continues to diminish.
Beginning on 8/06, the Indian Valley Fire will be patrolled by aircraft. Ground resources will staff the fire only if a threat to containment lines is detected.
Projected Incident Activity
Over the next 12 hours, interior pockets will continue to smolder, creep, spread through unburned islands. In the next 72 hours, fire behavior will continue to diminish as unburned pockets burn out. Fire spread along containment lines should be minimal. Heat sources along containment lines and interior pockets of unburned fuels may persist.
