Boulder Mountain Fire update for Wednesday, Sept. 21

Boulder Mountain Fire
News - 09/21/2022

 CUSICK, Wash. – Work on the fire is progressing rapidly, with large sections of containment line nearing completion and other areas shifting to patrol and monitor status.

Crews will continue building direct and indirect line for the next several days.  Work has begun to rehabilitate line.  Fallers will begin cutting hazard trees along forest roads. Chipping of brush and hazard trees will continue at various points around the fire boundary. Depending on the terrain and fuels, completed containment lines can be a combination of dozer line, hand line other fire suppression activities. Repair work consists of pushing surface material that was removed by hand or with heavy equipment back into place or position it to prevent erosion.

Safety: Safety of firefighters and members of the public are our first priority.  All hunters are encouraged to become familiarized with the USFS closure area, don personal protective equipment and practice safe hunting practices as forest grouse season gets under way.

Closures: An area closure remains in place for the Boulder Mountain Fire on the Colville National Forest. For a map and complete description of the closure area, including a list of trails and roads, go to https://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/colville/alerts-notices.
