Incident Photo for the Woodhead Fire

The Woodhead Fire is contained and is in patrol status.

Suppression rehab is completed with the expectation of winter weather conditions in the near future. Over 60 miles of dozer line was repaired across private, state, Bureau of Land Management, and Forest Service lands. It took a lot of coordination with other agencies, landowners, and permittees to perform the repair work. The fire personnel and resource advisor were able to complete the repair with the help of three excavators, one dozer, and the Black Mountain Hot Shot crew. This work concludes the Woodhead Fire incident.

The BAER assessment was also completed this week and a proposed treatment plan was submitted to the Intermountain Regional Office for review and approval. Additional details regarding the BAER treatments will be announced upon approval and a new Inciweb site will be established for the Woodhead BAER efforts.
