Creek Fire News Release

Creek Fire Update for Sept. 17, 2017

Incident: Creek Fire Wildfire
Released: 9/17/2017

Location: The Creek Fire is located in the Clear Lake/Bourland Mountain Area on the
Mi-Wok Ranger District, Stanislaus National Forest.

Summary

Fire behavior is minimal with backing, creeping and smoldering. Warmer temperatures have dried out the vegetation making the fuels more available to burn. Northerly winds are predicted over the fire area today which could increase fire activity. The fire is in a remote area with no structures threatened.


Objectives:

Planned activity for today: Crews are monitoring the fire and constructing and scouting out firelines on the southwest and northeast side of the fire. As favorable weather allows, firefighters will use a low intensity backing fire to remove fuels from the fire’s edge to the fireline.


Weather Outlook: Gusty ridge and northerly winds are possible today with mild temperatures through the weekend. Early next week a storm system is forecast to come through bringing cooler temperatures.
