Gusty Winds Continue to Push the Fire Northeast

Current Situation: The red flag weather conditions continued to challenge firefighters with extreme fire activity for a second day yesterday. Spotting from 50-60 mph wind gusts pushed the fire perimeter to the northeast. The most active areas of the fire are the two fingers north of Highway 14. One finger pushed past Bellaire Lake toward the 74E road, and the other finger burned east past the Shambhala Center along the 68C road corridor. Fire crews were able to protect the temple at Shambhala and continued use of sprinklers wetting down areas ahead of the fire along with point protection for other values at risk. Night resources continued defensive actions and point protection measures in the communities at risk. The southern side of the fire also remains active in the Comanche Reservoir and Long Draw areas but is burning back into itself limiting spread. The high winds grounded nearly all air resources yesterday. Power remains off in much of the northeast section of the fire for safety.

Cooler temperatures and decreasing winds today will create less havoc for firefighting efforts and be a welcome change after the past two difficult days. Crews and equipment will continue engaging the fire directly where there is a high probability of success and it is safe to do so. Firefighting efforts will focus heavily on protecting structures at risk.

The Pacific Northwest Incident Management Team 6 began arriving and will be shadowing Southwest Area Incident Management Team 3 to gather intelligence and situational awareness.
