Overview: The Sierra Front/Nevada Incident Management Team 5 continues to work closely with local officials from the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and Washington Department of Natural Resources to effectively and efficiently manage shared resources currently on the fires and continue assessing needs for additional resources.   
Currently the Siouxon Fire is 437 acres and is burning on steep, remote terrain within an unburned island within the Big Hollow Fire scar on the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. The Siouxon Fire is surrounded to the west, north and east by burn scars from the Big Hollow Fire and poses little threat to escaping the fire area this late in the season. Leadership has decided that due to the time of year, location of the fire, topographic challenges, and lack of safety mitigations available, the Fire team will not be staffing the fire on the ground at this time.
