Rams Horn Fire on morning of September 9Image options: [ Full Size ]

Lightning storms moving through the area in early September ignited several fires. Forest officials and firefighters closely monitor and respond to these fires and aerial reconnaissance flights will often be used to determine potential growth activity of the fires and develop appropriate response activity. The reconnaissance flights are part of our normal operating plan after lightning storms.

Below we have listed each fire by the time the fire was reported, the name given to the fire, the approximate location and estimated fire size (if known) and current status. Any large fires will have a new "incident" page started in InciWeb and the link will appear next to the status.
