Fire Behavior Quiets

Fire 09-11

Fire officials report no significant change in the perimeter of the Little Horse Thief Canyon Fire where 300 people currently man the lines.  Reports from those lines indicate good progress was made on the northern and western perimeters which are those areas nearest the Town of Jackson. The most active burning yesterday was on the southeastern corner and involves small groups of trees.  The fire remains 10% contained.  With similar weather to yesterday and higher humidity forecast today, fire officials say the suppression efforts will be quite similar to yesterday.  Meanwhile, the precautionary preparations have continued in town, with fire personnel surveying properties on the south and east sides of town and devising plans for the defense of homes there if needed.  The area of town south of Broadway and east of Redmond as well as south of Kelly and east of Vine remain under evacuation advisory.  There are now a Wyoming Office of Homeland Security agency representative and a Wyoming National Guard agency representative working with Emergency Management in the Emergency Operations Center to offer their assistance and expertise to local responders as needed.
