Spot Fires Across Yankee Fork Road
Incident: Halstead Wildfire
There are 9 small spot fires that are all within half of a mile of each other that have spotted across to the east side of Yankee Fork Road. All 9 fires are being staffed with the support of helicopters making bucket drops. There are 3 handcrews (25 firefighters each) that have responded to that area. The wind was blowing straight west across Yankee Fork road. Yankee Fork remains under an evacuation order. The winds are forecast to die down by 8:00pm tonaight and if that is so, it will be to the advantage of the firefighters.
