The Bridge Creek Fire was ignited by lightning on the afternoon of August 8th, 2017, on the Colville Reservation of NE Washington. After Initial Attack on August 9th by the Mount Tolman Fire Center, the fire continued to grow. As Northwest Incident Management Team 6 transitioned into management of the fire beginning at 6 PM on August 11th, the fire now currently stands at 3709 acres. Efforts were being made to stop it by direct attack on the south side in order to protect Bridge Creek Road, an important transportation route to the tribal community. Due to rock cliffs in the fire area and subsequent concern for firefighter safety. As conditions have changed we have switched to direct tactics on the fire. As of August 25, NW team6 transitioned with NW IMT 11. NW Team11, Incident Commander Nathan Rabe, assumed command at 1800 that same evening. NW Team 11 has since assumed command of the incident and management of the fire suppression efforts.

My #gencoupe is feeling much better after Burbank Auto Detail removed its frosting-like coating of #CreekFire ash.
