The Sam Jim Fire is burning in ponderosa pine with a grass understory and in mixed conifer. Resources were applied this past weekend to contain the fire on the east, west and south ends of the fire containing it within the boundary of FR 170. The north end of the fire is in steep canyon country with a high occurrence of snags.
Fire fighter safety is our number one priority and placing them in steep unstable terrain could have adverse effects, so we will continue to monitor this area.
