FINAL News Release

Current activity: The fire is contained, but is not controlled. There will continue to be visible smoke as unburned islands within the interior of the fire continue to burn. Crews will remain on the fire and will continue working on hot spots and monitoring the fire until it is controlled.

The Northeast Washington Incident Management Team 1 that has been working on the fire for the past five days will transfer command to the Colville National Forest’s Three Rivers Ranger District tomorrow, August 15th, at 6 am. The team has developed a detailed plan of actions to be used should the fire rekindle and pose a threat to people or property. The final acreage was modified slightly to reflect complete mapping through GPS tracks obtained by a person walking the entire fire perimeter.
