Despite scattered rain showers on Friday and Saturday, the Tank Hollow fire continued to burn yesterday throughout a wide area inside existing containment lines. The fire area is likely to smolder throughout the remainder of the season and smoke may be visible. Fire behavior analysts with Great Basin Team 6 project that only a heavy rain event or snow will put a complete end to the fire activity.
Team 6 will be transitioning command of the fire back to a local fire management organization tomorrow and the remaining crews will continue mopping up and repairing damage done by suppression efforts.
The fire is 78% contained and 11,067 acres in size.
The following areas are now open: Forest Road #042 (Indian Creek Road), between Sheep Creek Road(#051) and its junction with Forest Road #043; and on Forest Road #043, between its junction with Forest Road #042, south to its junction with Forest Road #131.
Closure Order #04-19-344 Remains In Place:
Closure order #04-19-344 remains in place through November 31, 2017. Forest Service Roads #032, #761, #725 (Tie Fork Road) and Upper Tie Fork Single Track Trail (Forest Service Trail #023)
Great Basin Team 6 extends a thank-you to the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, State of Utah, Utah County and Spanish Fork City.
