Nickowitz Fire Update

Incident: Nickowitz Wildfire
Released: 9/24/2015

Orleans Ranger District: The fire is still 93 percent contained and 7,509 acres in size.

Considerable progress was made yesterday in stage 2 suppression repair work. Short sections of contingency lines were discovered and added to the overall repair map. We still have smoke showing along the Barren Ridge area.

Forecasted winds today should tell the story if the fire is going to move or not from these areas of heat. The Temporary Flight Restrictions over the fire have been lifted, and operations are being evaluated and right-sized for the current conditions.

Closures: A closure order (10-15-09) is in effect for public and firefighter safety. The order protects the public from firefighting activities and provides safe travel for fire suppression activities within the closure area.
