Initial Attack resources were unable to corral this remote wildfire as it spread rapidly through grass, sage, pinyon juniper and fir. The combination of drought-stressed vegetation, unseasonably hot weather and steep terrain led to weeks of active burning. Smoke columns were often visible from Grand Junction and the surrounding area as the wildfire exhibited extreme fire behavior.
During the night of August 18, the fire grew quickly due to thunderstorm winds up to 40 mph for a three to four hour period. As a result, the fire increased by more than 30, acres that night. Firefighters worked to protect homes and outbuildings using a combination of bulldozers and handcrews to build firelines.
Road systems were used as control lines where crews initiated firing operations to slow the fire spread. The Southern Area Type 1 Incident Management Red Team took command of the fire on August 30 and is coordinating efforts to complete fire containment and begin suppression repair of areas damaged by actions taken to contain the fire, such as retardant drops and building firelines.Ep. 8 - Merging Content and Technology with Verena Hubertz
