8-25-13 Afternoon Operational Update
Incident: Forks Complex (includes Butler Fire ) Wildfire
Butler Fire afternoon Operational update for August 25, 2013
There were no new fire starts from the thunderstorms last night but the Butler Fire received ¾-inch to just scattered showers.
Although the Salmon River Road was closed this morning as a result of storm-related hazardous conditions, it is currently open again. Temporary closures and openings should be expected as weather conditions change.
The water on the roads this morning also made it hazardous for fire fighters to access the fire. This afternoon it is hoped that firefighters will be able to get out on the line south and north of Orleans Mountain (Divisions H and K) to assess last night’s burns. Elsewhere they are currently monitoring and mopping up the fire.
