Incident Overview

Inciweb information was updated: 1 week ago

Incident Photo for the Radford Fire

CURRENT CONDITIONS:

Smoke may be visible in/around the Big Bear and Seven Oaks areas. The smoke is caused by gusty winds causing previously unseen deep heat to begin smoking. Crews continue to seek out these heat sources and take action to extinguish them. These new smokes are interior and the fire is holding within control lines. Firefighters are working to actively secure the fire edge mopping up 100 feet in.

At 7:00am Monday the fire transitioned to a local Type 4 organization and R. Gillespie has assumed command of the Radford Fire. Currently, 4 Engines, 1 Water Tender, and 2 Hand Crews remain engaged in the control of the fire.

A B.A.E.R.(Burn Area Emergency Response) Team has begun its Post Fire Assessment. A separate inciweb page has been established for this: https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/8425 The team, made up of specialists, will assess the potential for post-fire flooding, debris flows and rockslides updates and current progress will be posted daily.

WEATHER:

This afternoon (Wednesday) will remain cooler with light gusty winds. High pressure will begin building tomorrow bringing with it warming temperatures into early next week.
