Pony Complex Fire Daily Update August 15, 2013
Location: 12 miles Northeast of Mountain Home, ID
Assigned Resources: 343 personnel
Closures: : Blacks Creek Rd., Indian Creek Rd., Anderson Ranch Dam south on the Dixie Creek Cutoff to Hwy 20, Prairie Road/Cow Cr. Rd north from Hwy 20, Northbound Mayfield Rd from Mayfield.
Fire Situation: Today, fire managers plan to finish containment on the north end of the burn in the Black’s Creek area. Hand crews and engines will be on the line to complete containment and secure the perimeter on the south side of the road. The objective for these operations is to make the fire line secure without burning additional grazing land.
On the remainder of the fire, dozer line is being mapped and tagged for fire suppression repair work aimed at rehabilitating the soil. The Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management are creating rehabilitation plans for the long-term treatment of burned areas.
Crews have been directed to mop up hot spots inside the perimeter in anticipation of high winds forecast for tomorrow.
