Due to the size of this fire upon initial attack, it is believed the Middle fire was a holdover from storms passing through the area a few days prior to detection. A commercial pilot flying into the JH airport spotted the fire located in a remote area of Ditch Creek, on the Jackson Ranger district. Helicopter 35X equipped with a bucket helped to support 6 firefighters on the ground with full suppression tactics.
