Fire Update: Solomon Fire, Welcome Creek Wilderness - Sept. 19, 2022
Over the past few days, the Solomon Fire grew by approximately 50 acres and is now estimated to be 400 acres in size. The fire continues to slowly grow and exhibit moderate-active fire behavior, primarily on the eastern and the northern flanks of the fire. Yesterday’s cool weather and high humidity slowed fire growth and moderated fire behavior considerably. The fire continues to slowly burn in the main bowl below Solomon Mountain (at approximately 6,800 feet in elevation), burning through the heavy dead and down fuels.
