The Club Creek Fire started 3 miles southwest of Root Ranch. Crews are doing point protection on values at risk, and are working closely with Root Ranch personnel. The fire is one of three burning in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness on the Payette National Forest. The Club, Rush Creek, and Vinegar fires were started by lightning on July 15, 2021. A Type 3 Incident Management Team took over the fires on July 19th.
A reconnaissance flight yesterday, Saturday, July 24, observed that the fire continued to burn actively. Firefighters remain in place protecting Root Ranch. There were no aircraft available for an infrared overflight last night so there is no acreage update for this morning, Sunday, July 25.
