Significant Events

A Type 3 Incident Managment Team is coordinating firefighting efforts. Firefighters are “blacklining” along forest roads and trails to suppress the fire. Blacklining removes fuel on one side of containment lines to make them wider. This evening, smoke may settle between Yellowjacket Pass and Chimney Rock on the Highway 160 corridor, and into the Piedra River drainage toward Arboles.
