Fishhawk Fire Wildfire
News – 9/9/2019

Yesterday’s precipitation along with today’s predicted moisture and cooler temperatures have been good for keeping the fire in its place. With more rain forecasted for this coming week, there should be minimal fire activity.

Rocky Mountain Incident Management Blue Team will transition command back to the local fire resources with the Shoshone National Forest. The new team will assume command today at 6:00 pm. All future Fishhawk Fire updates will come from the Shoshone National Forest. Please go to www.fs.usda.gov/shoshone or call 307.250.0148 for updated maps and information. Forest area closures are still in place around both the Fishhawk and Stink Water fires.

Firefighter crews finished all chipping work along the north side of the fire. Many of the firefighters have been demobilized and are heading back to their home units. Remaining crews will be monitoring the fire today with the local fire resources. They are briefing the new team on work that has been completed as well as locations of structure protection supplies and hose lays. The structure protection group finished all the assessments and have shared that information with the Park County Fire Protection District to implement into their county structure protection plan.

The Stink Water Fire remains at 47 acres, is 68% contained with no anticipated spread. Local resources will continue to monitor.

The Rocky Mountain Blue Team would like to thank everyone in the community for their support and kindness while we had been given the opportunity to manage this fire.
