News – 6/12/2018

Burn out operations are taking place on the ridgeline west of Hermosa. Crews are currently working in the areas of High Meadows Ranch and Falls Creek Main roads. The intention of this burn out is to stay ahead of the fire and slow its progress, giving crews preparing the Junction Creek Rd. (171) time to complete their work. The Falls Creek Rd. (CR 205) and the Junction Creek Rd. (171) will border the containment area of upcoming burn out operations, as mentioned in this morning’s update. Structure protection work continues in this area.
