Rattlesnake Fire

Fire activity: Cold wet weather contributed to minimal fire behavior yesterday as crews have largely shifted to repair, chipping, and clean-up.  Numerous crews were released from the fire, many were re-assigned to other incidents. As fuels dry out over the weekend, fire activity will increase but is expected to remain well within the interior of the control lines. Friday, the Rattlesnake Fire will transition back to Forest Management. This will be the final daily update unless significant events occur.

The Rattlesnake Fire put up more smoke today due to tactical ground firing operations and planned aerial ignitions that helped to consume unburned fuels and strengthen control lines. Firefighters plan on completing the last mile or so of firing along the edge of Road 25 east to the junction with Highway 191. When weather and operational progress dictate, tactical firing operations will continue from Highway 191 west along the southern edge of the Bear Wallow Wilderness to join up with firefighters burning out coming from the west.
