“The public is asked to avoid the Trail Creek Hot Springs area as it is closed.
We are concerned about the smoke having an impact to travelers along the Warm Lake highway,” according to Ronda Bishop, USFS Cascade Ranger District.
Four other new fires in the Cascade Ranger District have started today in response to the weather conditions, all just west of Warm Lake and all less than once acre. Resources have been dispatched to all of them.
The West Scriver Fire is now estimated to be 600 acres, 13 miles north of Crouch, Idaho. There are 3 dozers, 1 water tender, 1 engine, 1 hotshot crew and 7 Type 2 crews, supported by multiple air resources. 200 firefighters now are on-scene. Firefighters used the anchor point at the southwestern corner to continue operations, with dozers and hand crews heading north as they tackle the fire along the western perimeter. Fire behavior observed includes isolated tree torching and ¼ to ½ mile spotting ahead of the main fire.
Latest reports for the Wolf Fire indicate it still is approximately 52 acres. The fire is located 8 miles east of Jackson Peak and about 1 mile west of the Sawtooth Wilderness. Two Interagency Hot Shot crews and eight smoke jumpers are tackling the fire, for a total of 48 personnel.
