 A Type 3 Incident Management Team is managing 4 fires in the same general area. Each fire is burning in remote steep rugged terrain with limited access. The fires are remote and are not threatening critical infrastructure, wildlife habitat, nor watershed integrity. Further trail closures, however, are planned as public safety remains the highest priority. The fires were all started from lightning as numerous thunderstorms have passed over the area the past three weeks.
