Timber, brush, and short grass. Juniper, grass and sagebrush predominate, with pockets of ponderosa pine.
Minimal and smoldering
The fire behavior will be isolated to stump holes and heavier fuels until they burn out or are extinguished. There is the potential for an occasional flare up interior in areas of pretreated fuels or unburned fuels. Any deep or capped heat will have an opportunity to show itself.
Grid and patrol for spot fires.
Mop-up to secure the fire's perimeter.
Ensure all firelines are patrolled.
Work with the BLM and US Forest Service on suppression repair.
Identify and be prepared to provide firefighting resources to attack new fire starts if requested.
|Projected Incident Activity|
Heat wave will be in full force over the area. Fuels will be readily available for consumption. Unburned islands in the interior may pose a threat for reburn but, likely will not pose a threat for spotting or slop-overs.
ODF Team 1 will transition the fire to the ODF Klamath Unit at 8:00 a.m. on 6/27/21 to IC Peterson.
The weather will become increasingly hot and dry through the weekend. Winds should gradually lessen through the weekend as the heat wave moves through and pressure gradients weaken. Mitigating heat stress will be the main weather concern through the weekend.
