Mop Up Begins on Beaver Creek Fire

inciweb.org

KETCHUM, Idaho (AP) — The once-massive Beaver Creek Fire near Sun Valley is fully contained. That was the news Monday from fire incident commander Scott Johnson about the 170-square-mile fire that burned one home and threatened hundreds of others in mid-August.

Johnson says engine and handcrews patrolled the southern portion of the fire and determined there were no longer any significant perimeter hotspots. No active fire behavior was observed for the second-day running, a key indicator for crews that the Beaver Creek Fire no longer represents a threat to the region.

Now, crews will focus on repairing damage caused when they created fire lines before they pack up their tents and depart. Longer term, however, much work will likely have to be done to control erosion. The U.S. Forest Service is still evaluating closures.
