The Bryan Mountain fire near Pollock showed increased fire activity overnight driven by winds and thermal belts. The fire progressed further into Rapid River to the east and is in the middle third of the slope between the Dutch Oven Creek and Wyant Creek drainages. Point protection equipment for trail bridges is in place and ready to be deployed if a needed. The fire is currently estimated between 900 and 1000 acres. Weather overnight prevented infrared photography flights for more accurate mapping. This morning winds slowed and the fire began receiving precipitation at 10am, moderating fire behavior.
Trail #71 has been closed from the West Fork Rapid River Trail #113 to the Main Fork Rapid River Trail #59 for public safety due to current and potential spread of the Bryan Mountain fire into this area and related impacts to the trail. Please see the Closures tab for more information.
