Basic Information



Current as of 8/30/2017, 3:44:47 PM
Incident Type Wildfire
Cause Lightning
Date of Origin Monday July 31st, 2017 approx. 01:44 PM
Location The Summit Complex consists of 3 fires burning on the Summit Ranger District of the Stanislaus National Forest.
Incident Commander Brent Kaiser
Incident Description Complex Of Fires Started By Lightning.

Current Situation



Total Personnel 122
Size 1,152 Acres
Estimated Containment Date Tuesday October 31st, 2017 approx. 07:00 AM
Fuels Involved Closed timber litter, compact short needle, primarily red fir.
Significant Events Increased fire behavior, with fire spread in all directions. Some short range spotting is occurring in red fir.

Outlook



Planned Actions Crews will continue to monitor fire movement while working through the upcoming days to complete road preparations for small scale firing operations, which will be utilized to limit fire spread as fire behavior increases. Fire behavior is moderate, with some short-range spotting and backing.
Projected Incident Activity Overnight spread is expected to be minimal. A high pressure system with lower humidity and higher temperatures will create poor overnight recoveries.

Current Weather



Weather Concerns A period of hot and dry weather will persist over the fire area for the next several days, with a 10% chance of thunderstorms for Wednesday and Thursday. Fire activity is expected to increase as anticipated with the high pressure system and will lead to lower humidities and increasing temperatures with poor smoke dispersal.

Given the amount of fuel, scorching temps and strong winds, yet another monster exploded to over 3,500 acres in Nevada County outside of Grass Valley, the San Juan area I believe. This one caused by a campfire that got away.
