Final Smoke Outlook for 9/16-9/17

Slink Fire Wildfire
Announcements – 9/16/2020

This will be the last smoke outlook for the Slink Fire.

Today, the incoming Type 3 Team will take command of the Slink Fire. There is now 71% containment and the fire is holding at 26,700 acres. For the last few days, there has been minimal activity on the fire which has given crews opportunities to better secure the lines, especially on the western perimeter of the fire. With similar weather and smoky conditions in the forecast, we expect similar fire behavior today and Thursday.

Fires to the south of us will continue to be very active and smoke will continue to impact the reporting area for the rest of the week. We may see a little less smoke today, but we still expect Very Unhealthy to Hazardous conditions in the area. On Friday, winds will begin to shift more from the west and sites will start to see improved air quality.
