The Paddy Creek fire is located in the southeast portion of the reservation within Patty Butte. Yesterday firefighters picked up a few spots and conducted burnout operations. Today firefighters will continue to actively suppress the fire as it is within an active timber sale. The bulldozer will work on securing the northern portion of the fire using an old skid road. The helicopter conducted several bucket drops and were released from the fire.
