On June 24, 2021, a lightning storm ignited a fire in the Carson-Iceberg Wilderness northeast of Spicer Reservoir and southwest of Highland Lakes at the 7500 ft. elevation. Due to the remote and rugged terrain, fire managers are utilizing a confine/contain strategy using ridges, creeks, trails, and natural barriers to confine and contain the fire, and use direct suppression tactics where safe to do so. The terrain is steep with brush, patches of conifer trees and granite outcroppings.
