9-11-2015 Boise National Forest Fire Update

Fire Restrictions Lifted; One new fire; Cougar Fire Area Closure Still in Effect

This will be the last update unless significant activity occurs.

Fire Restrictions to Be Lifted in West Central Idaho Mountains Friday morning.

Rain showers, cooler weather and lower wildfire dangers have prompted state and federal wildfire officials to lift Stage 1 Fire Restrictions within the West Central Idaho Mountains effective today; Friday, September 11 at 12:01 a.m. For a map of the West Central Mountain Zone visit: www.fs.usda/boise; www.fs.usda/payette; http://idahofireinfo.blogspot.com/p/fire-restrictions.html

Lifting the restrictions means the public is free to build a campfire, use a charcoal barbeque or sheepherder stove, outside of designated campgrounds and recreation sites. Even though the fire restrictions are lifted, fire managers remind recreationists to use extreme caution when building a fire, use water to put out all campfires, and soak all charcoal and hot ash from barbeques and stoves.

Located south of the East Fork Yuba River and south of Atlanta, the approximately .25 acre Border Fire burned in grass and sub-alpine fir. At 8,700 ft. elevation, the fire was only accessible by air. A four-person helitack crew, with support from a helicopter dropping water, contained the fire last night.

The approximately.25 acre Carnie Fire located between Robie Creek and North Fork Robie Creek has been contained and is being monitored.

The Cougar Fire is contained, but still smoldering within the interior. For public and firefighter safety, the area closure remains in effect. The Warm Lake Highway 22 is open, but the public is asked to drive slowly as fire vehicles may be using the road. Forest Road 474 (South Fork Salmon River Road) and Forest Road 409 (Clear Creek Road) are open. The area west of Forest Road 409 is open, but the area east of the 409 road is closed. Specific information on road conditions and Forest closure is available at: http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/4541.
