Middle Fire

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. 

Flagstaff Fire

The Flagstaff fire was detected with the help of Friends of the BT Bear Ambassadors and Blackrock support staff on the evening of 8/20 from the Four Mile area. With bucket support from interagency helicopter 35 HX, firefighters worked with bucket drops to completely suppress the single tree fire.

The interagency fire response area has received several lightning strikes over the past few days and any early detection help from visitors to public lands is helpful and appreciated.
