Shawnee Peak Fire
Update 11pm, 8/26/19
The Shawnee Peak Fire is currently burning 40 acres in a remote area of the Lost Creek Wilderness. Today crews attempted to gain access to the fire on the ground as helicopters and fixed wing aircraft did aerial recon and used bucket drops to help slow the fires growth. The area that the fire is burning in is very steep and rugged with very limited access. Firefighters report this evening that the fire is currently smoldering and creeping with isolated torching. A video of an aerial recon has been added below.

Tomorrow firefighters will be shuttled in via helicopter to asses the strategies and tactics to ensure the safety of the planned operations as firefighter safety is always priority. Helicopters will be utilized to both shuttle crews to the fire and for bucket drops on the fire. There will be a task force of engine crews that will be doing structure assessment and preplanning in and around the community of Shawnee which is still approximately 4 miles from the fire.

Update 7:45am, 8/27/19
The Shawnee Peak Fire briefing occurred at the AG Ranch in Shawnee this morning. Fire behavior is limited this morning due to higher humidity overnight. There are no road closures at this time. Five trail heads leading into the Lost Creek Wilderness have been closed. Fire fighters will be flown into the fire today and will begin fire suppression using natural features on the landscape to minimize suppression caused damage to natural and cultural resources.
