CONDITIONS

Firefighters continue to mop up within the fire area and improve the perimeter containment lines for the next few days. However isolated pockets of downed heavy fuels, timber slash piles and dead trees, remain hot and are hampering mop-up operations. The Butte unit assuming control of fire at 0800 5/9/13.Road Closures: Unstable road surfaces due to the rain are impeding resource traffic and are becoming a dangerous situation. Therefore the L Line has been closed to all traffic. Because of this dangerous situation we ask that all remain out of the fire area except for fire personnel. The area between Highway 32 and Highway 36 known as the Deer Creek and Mill Creek recreation Area as well as the Ishi Wilderness are closed to the public. Highway 32 and Highway 36 will remain open but be aware of the heavy fire equipment traffic on those highways throughout the day.Additional Information: Sections of the fire have moved into fire suppression repairstages. More than 80 local government agencies have assisted with the suppression of this fire. Every Year the first full week of May is proclaimed ?Wildfire Awareness Week?. This will serve as the final fact sheet for the incident.
