Crews Hold The Lines On The LHC Fire

mop-up

In spite of increased winds and single-digit humidity in the afternoon, fire activity on the Little Horsethief Canyon Fire was limited to some torching within the perimeter of the fire and minimal spotting; and very little smoke was visible from Jackson. With help from the helicopters, hand crews held existing fire lines on Saturday while also creating additional line on the southern perimeter. Turbulent winds on the lower west flank forced crews to drop back but the Type 1 helicopters successfully continued operations in that area. Structure assessments took place today in the Porcupine Creek area. Fire crews have assessed over 500 structures since the fire began and have developed contingency plans for those areas. No areas are either under evacuation orders or evacuation advisories. Dozers constructed additional lines to protect the Game Creek and Porcupine Creek subdivisions. Large, portable water tanks were set up at strategic locations. These actions are precautionary in case fire activity increases. Fire engines continue to provide protection in east Jackson and the Game Creek subdivision.  The fire appears to have remained at 3,353 acres and is now 42% contained with 669 people involved in the firefight.  To date, the fire has cost $4.7-million to battle.

    Being prepared for the worst is never a bad idea. However, if you carry everything you might need for any emergency, you won’t have room for your tent or sleeping bag. A first aid kit needs to be light and compact, or it’ll be one of the first things you toss out of the pack […]
