Clover Fire Update August 5, 2022

Clover Fire
News - 08/06/2022

 Yesterday’s Operations: Firefighters patrolled and monitored the fire perimeter to ensure it stayed within constructed containment lines. Red Flag Warning weather brought gusts up to 38 mph at the highest elevation.  Some interior islands of unburned fuels burned well but containment lines were not challenged. Although a thunderstorm was predicted over the fire, no measurable rain fell.

Today’s Operations:  The GYA Type 3 Incident Management Team (IMT) are in the process of transitioning management of this fire to a new team.  The new IMT will shadow the current team for 1-2 days to ensure a smooth transition of the management of the fire. 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:  Mostly cloudy.  Chance of rain showers.  Temperature 65-70.  Minimum humidity 30-35.  Winds from the South 8-14 mph, with gusts up to 25 mph.  (Several waves of monsoon moisture will move through the region through Saturday.  This will bring an increased chance for rain and thunderstorms.  Gusty winds, lightning, heavy rainfall and small hail is possible with the thunderstorm activity.  A warming and drying trend is expected Sunday into early next week.) 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  An area Closure Order remains in effect until October 30, 2022 or until rescinded, and can be viewed at the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest webpage: https://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/bdnf/alerts-notices.
