The Fill Fire is continuing to burn southwest of Pinedale in the previous Rodeo-Chediski Fire perimeter off Forest Service Roads 132 and 300 on the Lakeside Ranger District.
With light precipitation in the area, the fire continued to burn at a low intensity. The entire fire perimeter has been “blacklined” (surrounded by fire line), and crews will continue managed ignitions in the interior as weather conditions allow. Fire crews continue to maintain safety as the number one priority as they work to reduce the heavy pockets of dense ground fuels.
There may be minor smoke impacts to residents in Pinedale and Clay Springs. Smoke may also visible from State Highway 60 and U.S. Highway 260, as well as the communities of Heber-Overgaard, Linden, Pinedale, Snowflake, Taylor, Show Low and Pinetop-Lakeside.
