July 14 - Jacob City Fire Update

Jacob City
News - 07/14/2022

Yesterday, thunderstorms dropped moderate wetting rain in the fire area. Crews on the northernmost edge of the fire constructed fireline and worked to control some spotting. They also dug handline to control spread outside of the fire’s perimeter and received extra support from numerous water drops. With the help of engines, crews continued to construct handlines upslope from the bottom of Soldier Canyon toward Sharp Mountain. Firefighters expanded the area around a structure within the fire perimeter near Commodore Pass. Most of the perimeter is holding at the existing fireline, and firefighters will go direct where fuels and terrain allow. If there are locations with too much heat, helicopters may continue dropping water.

Weather today will remain hot and dry at lower elevations with temperatures over 100. Thunderstorms with monsoonal moisture will continue to move north across Utah and could cause erratic winds. While these storms may bring precipitation, it is possible that only minimal to moderate wetting rain will reach the fire area—especially at higher elevations. Crews will work to secure and hold existing perimeters in the event of extreme weather.="background:white">
