The Corral Fire started on Sept. 17 but was not found until today Sept. 20. The fire had been smoldering and creeping in duff and litter, so was difficult to locate. Winds and warmer temperatures led to more active fire behavior in heavy timber and made easier to detect from 35HX helicopter. E411 with 4 firefighters were able to assist via UTV and take suppression action. The fire was located between Dry Creek and Trail Fork of Cottonwood Creek on the Greys River Ranger District was less than a tenth of an acre. The Corral Fire has been called out.
