Pumpkin Fire Update for August 17, 2020

Pumpkin Fire Wildfire
News – 8/17/2020

Crews made great progress yesterday and the fire is now 100% contained and remains at 438 acres.  Type 3 team managing the fire transferred command back to the local area this morning, and many resources are being demobilized back to their home units or reassigned to other fires where they are needed. A smaller organization will remain to patrol and ensure the control lines remain secure, to pull pumps and hose lays, and to complete repairs of the suppression lines to prevent erosion.

Hawley Mountain Road 374 is temporarily closed at the 307 junction to all non-fire traffic. Water tenders and a grader continue to maintain the road.

The suppression of the fire is a joint effort between the Idaho Department of Lands, the US Forest Service, and the Bureau of Land Management.
