Incident Photo for the Middle Fire

9/15/2022 Will be the last update for the Middle Fire.

Great Basin Incident Management Team 4 assumed command of the Middle Fire at 6:00 a.m. on September 9/11/22. Team 4 is also managing the Tenmile Fire.

The Middle Fire was ignited by the thunderstorms that passed over the area on September 7th. It is burning in the West Fork of Rapid River – Jackley Mountain Area on the New Meadows Ranger District, near the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest. The fire is 54 acres and burning in light ground-based fuels with low fire intensity.

The Middle Fire received wetting rain over the fire area on Tuesday, September 13, which reduced fire activity to minimal creeping and smoldering. Hotshot crews engaged in direct suppression efforts on the fire and were able to gain 85% containment. Crews will continue working to achieve 100% containment, anticipated over the next couple of days.
