Trail Mountain Fire Update
Thursday, June 14, 2018
Start Date: June 4, 2018 Size: 9,554 acres
Percent Contained: 10%
Helicopters: 6 Engines: 22
Crews: 16 Total Personnel: 620
Summary: Despite critical weather factors and a Red Flag Warning, fire behavior was more moderate than expected on the Trail Mountain Fire on Thursday. Fire activity picked up during the evening, burning up Mill Fork. Firefighters were able to take advantage of the decreased activity and increased containment on the fire. The overall percentage of containment, however, does not reflect this due to the large amount of growth on the fire yesterday.
Pending any unexpected activity, Highway 31 will reopen at 7 AM tomorrow morning. If you must travel through Huntington Canyon, please do so slowly and cautiously. Firefighters and equipment will continue to work in close proximity to the roadway and there is a likelihood of smoke settling into the canyon overnight.
Closures: The Manti-La Sal National Forest has closed Indian Creek Campground, Forest Trail 0051, and Forest Roads 0034, 2302, 2181, 2180, and 2182. Trail Canyon and all campgrounds between the Huntington Power Plant and mile post 18.5 of Highway 31 are also closed.
