Incident #: UWF-892 Fire Start: 5 months ago Location: 5.5 miles SE of Rocky Ridge, UT Acres: 18,620 Agency: Northern Utah Interagency Fire Center (UT-NUC)
Fire Growth Potential
Updated: 1 hour, 55 mins ago — The Bald Mountain Fire started by lightning on August 24, 2018 in the Mount Nebo Wilderness just off the top of Bald Mountain. Due to a recent rain, a reduction in fire danger, and it being a natural ignition at just below 11,000’ in the wilderness, the decision was made to employ a monitor strategy. Over the course of the next 2-3 weeks, the fire only grew to about 20 acres. On the afternoon of September 12, the fire became very active due to low RH and high winds; fire quickly spread off the mountain and continued to actively burn. The first evacuations were Thursday, September 13th. That day a decision was made to order a Type 1 Incident Management Team, IMT. Currently the fire is being managed in conjunction with Pole Creek Fire by California Interagency Incident Managment Team 1 (McGowen)See the links on this inciweb site for videos of helicopter flights and daily operational briefings.See...
