The Holman Fire, burning approximately 302 acres in a wilderness area, is posing no threat to infrastructure or private homes.

Holman Fire & Pacific Crest Trail: A recently filed Methow Valley Ranger District Wilderness Ranger trip report details the current status of PCT-N #2000 (from Windy Pass TH to ~3/4 mile south of Holman Pass). The Ranger hiked out and removed 29 logs, numerous fallen branches, and larger rocks from the trail. The Ranger stated: “I was not able to hike through the entire burn, as there were still small sections of smoldering material and smoke.” As of 8/31/18, there is a detour for hikers to reach the Canadian border from Slate Pass using Trail No. 575 to Trail No.478, then Trail No. 473 to Woody Pass.
