Abstract

This report summarizes the progress of the Hayman Fire, its behavior, and the influence of environmental conditions. Data were obtained from narratives from fire behavior analysts assigned to the fire management teams, discussions with fire management staff, meteorology from local weather stations and Bradshaw and others (2003), photographs, satellite imagery, and public internet sites. Possible explanations are advanced for observed fire behavior and effects. A fire chronology details as fully as possible the fire behavior and progress associated with specific days and weather conditions.
