JARDINE FIRE UPDATE AUGUST 6, 2018

Logan, Utah, August 6, 2018 - The Jardine Fire is burning east of Mount Jardine in the Mount Naomi Wilderness on the Logan Ranger District.  The fire was reported on July 29th and was caused by lightning.  It has burned 3.5 acres and is now 75% contained.  Isolated pockets of sub-alpine fir trees are burning within steep, rocky terrain in the cliffs of the South Fork Cottonwood Canyon.  Smoke from the isolated burning was minimal today.

The Kings Peak Wildland Fire Module (WFM) continued work at the Jardine Fire today.  They worked to eliminate fuels in the area through piling and burning, continued to monitor the isolated burning in the cliff bands, cleaned up trash and rehabilitated seven camp sites in the wilderness area. 

No structures, campgrounds, or communities are threatened and no trail closures are in effect.  The fire is located a short distance from the Green Canyon Trail in the Mount Jardine area on the east side of the trail.  The public is being asked to avoid the fire and firefighter operations, if hiking or backpacking in the area.
