The lightning caused Tango Fire was reported the evening of July 17th. The fire is located approximately five (5) miles south of Diamond D Ranch in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness on the Middle Fork Ranger District. The fire is burning in steep and rocky terrain with cliffs that make access dangerous. While the rocky terrain limits ground access, it also serves to limit the potential for fire growth. Fire activity has been minimal due to recent moisture. Observations on the Tango Fire from the air on Sunday, August 1, noted no smoke or fire growth. Much drier conditions shift into the region beginning today, though there is a very outside chance of an isolated thunderstorm this afternoon and evening, and again on Wednesday. The next system to impact the region arrives Thursday, bringing a mix of wet and dry storms to the area through Friday. A cold front passage on Friday will bring the next threat for gusty winds.
