Change to Hardluck Fire Area Closure
Incident: Hardluck Fire Wildfire
Cody, Wyo. (September 5, 2013) – The Hardluck Fire are has had diminished activity in the past two weeks due to higher humidity, cloud cover, and scattered showers. Because of decreased activity, the Shoshone National Forest has reduced the size of the area closure.
Acreage within the fire perimeter has not increased in almost two weeks. Shoshone National Forest crews are currently inside the closure area clearing hazardous fire-killed trees along the main trails. This work is being completed with the aim of lifting the entire closure area, pending any increase in fire activity, on Thursday, September 12th.
A description and map of the decreased area closure can be viewed at www.inciweb.org. Information and updates are also available on Twitter (@ShoshoneNF).
As the nation’s first national forest, the Shoshone National Forest has 2.4 million acres of diverse terrain and a mission to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the forest to meet the needs of present and future generations.
