The Club Fire started 3 miles southwest of Root Ranch. Crews have completed point protection on values at risk in close cooperation with Root Ranch personnel. The fire is one of three burning in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness on the Payette National Forest. The Club, Rush Creek, and Vinegar fires were started by lightning on July 15, 2021. A Type 3 Incident Management Team took over the fires on July 19th and returned the fires to management by the Forest the week of August 2.

The Infrared overflight last night mapped the fire at 375 acres. With the north side of the fire facing Root Ranch inactive even before this weekend's precipitation, and point protection measures completed, firefighters were demobilized from the incident.  The fire will remained unstaffed and this will be the last Inciweb update unless conditions and fire behavior change.
