A Type 3 Incident Management Team will take command of the Woods Creek fire at 0700 on Tuesday morning. A recon flight was flown this morning by the current Incident Commander and the Incident Commander for the incoming Type III Incident Management Team that showed active fire with some interior pockets that may continue to burn. Crews were able to provide structure protection and create containment lines during the operational period today.
It is anticipated that there will be some fire movement to the east and south east of the fire's current perimeter. There is an Infrared Flight scheduled for tonight to give a more accurate representation of the size of this fire.
