Clover Fire
News - 08/04/2022

 Yesterday’s Operations:  Firefighters patrolled and monitored the fire perimeter to ensure it stayed within constructed containment lines. Wednesday’s weather was not favorable for active burning. Some single trees torched but no spot fires resulted from this.

  Today’s Operations:  Firefighters will patrol and monitor the fire perimeter to ensure it stays within constructed containment lines.  Firefighters will be on heightened alert when Red Flag Warning weather occurs. Strategy:  The fire is currently being managed under a confine/contain    strategy due to fuel conditions, geographic location and values at risk.  The objective is to contain fire in the Middle Fork Warm Springs Creek drainage, utilizing fuel type changes, natural breaks and burnout operations. Weather: Red Flag Warning in effect from noon to 9 pm.  Mostly sunny then becoming mostly cloudy with a chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon.  Temperatures between 72 and 76.  Minimum relative humidity between 18 and 22 percent.  Winds breezy, southwest 13-23 mph increasing to 20-27 with gusts to 36 mph in the afternoon.  Thunderstorm could bring erratic wings to 45 mph, lightning, small hail and brief heavy rainfall. Safety of firefighters and the public are the highest priorities for incident management.  An area Closure Order remains in effect until October 30, 2022 or until rescinded, and can be viewed at the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest webpage: https://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/bdnf/alerts-notices.
