The Juliet Fire was detected on August 22nd, 2018 and is burning in the upper White River within the Bob Marshall Wilderness.
On September 16th, there was some wind driven fire activity in Pedro Creek below the Wall Creek Cliffs. As a whole, the Juliet Fire has been significantly less active as colder temperatures remain throughout the region. The fire burning in the upper end of the Wall Creek drainage has reached the 2012 Wall Creek Fire burn scar. The previous fire has significantly slowed current fire activity in this area. The fire is creeping and smoldering in Hoop, Upper Juliet, and Wall Creeks. The previous spot fire that had established in the headwaters of Juliet Creek continues to slowly creep towards the Continental Divide near My Lake. The area reported 0.04" of rain on September 15th.
Trail closures remain in place, including the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDT). The Moose Fire to the east of the divide has also resulted in closures on the CDT. We will continue to monitor the fire with aerial resources.
