Operations on the Mormon Fire are ramping down and burnout operations have ceased, in response to public concerns about smoke impacts. The Mormon Fire is moving into monitor status with firefighters conducting mop-up and removing hazardous trees. Residual smoke will continue to be present as firefighters work to fully contain the fire.
The Jack Fire is currently being used to clean up forest fuels in the area east of Happy Jack and protect values such as vital powerlines that feed power throughout the state. Smoke will be visible as this fire is actively managed for multiple objectives.
