Camp Creek Fire Evening Update, 8/26/23
Release Date: Aug 26, 2023
After a warm and dry day, as well as more accurate mapping, Camp Creek Fire is estimated at 900 acres. An infrared flight is scheduled tonight that will provide an even better estimate and fire perimeter. While the fire did grow today, the abundant forest duff material and dense forest provided a lot of fuel and put up a large smoke column relative to the size of the fire.
Great Basin Team #1 will assume management of the fire beginning at 6 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 27. The team brings many additional resources and capacity to help plan and implement fire suppression. There will be a dedicated Facebook page for the Camp Creek Fire, in addition to a dedicated Inciweb.nwcg.gov webpage to share updated fire information more frequently.
