Dry Creek Mop Up Continues

Mop up work continues on the Dry Creek Fire north of BZ Corners.  The containment level for the 337 acre fire moved up to 50 percent.  The objective of firefighters is to establish a band of “cold black” within the fire’s perimeter.  “Cold black” is firefighter shorthand for a combination of completely consumed fuel and no flame or heat in the remaining fuels.  That is essential to reasonably reducing the potential for the fire to escape and resume growing.  It is especially important early in the fire season with the expectation of hot, dry conditions intensifying fire danger.  Firefighters are striving to complete the remaining mop up this weekend.  The pilot car is scheduled to be discontinued at 2 p.m. Friday.  Reduced speeds and extra caution while traveling through the fire area are still recommended.
