Fire in Kisatchie Wilderness Contained

The Rainbow Point Fire (see map) within the Kisatchie Hills Wilderness has been contained and is no longer actively burning.  Currently U.S. Forest Service employees are conducting rehabilitation work to mitigate any impact to the Wilderness that may have occurred due to the fire and the suppression activities.  The wildfire burned in a steep, rocky area and hand crews were used to contain the fire.

The Kisatchie Hills Wilderness and associated recreation sites and trails remain closed. Longleaf Vista and the Longleaf Vista trail remain closed.  Recreation sites and trails outside of the Kisatchie Hills Wilderness and Longleaf Vista remain open.
