Timber (Litter and Understory) Fire is burning in mixed conifer lodgepole pine stands with as much as 30 to 40% standing dead. Stands are dense enough to allow for fire spread from tree to tree. Heavy presence of large diameter dead and down on the forest floor is carrying fire and providing a receptive fuel bed for spotting. Fuel moistures are very low in large fuels allowing them to be available. Limited activity as a result of precipitation received.
