June 19th, 2015: Wildfire Update

The Pinon Fire grew to 365 acres on the Reserve Ranger District today. The lightning-caused fire started Tuesday, June 16 east of Eagle Peak and is being managed to achieve multiple resource objectives such as protecting wildlife habitat, cultural resources and livestock forage in the area.

About 12 personnel – including two engines and crews – are assigned to the incident. Today, crews worked along Forest Road 94 to reinforce the western boundary of the fire. Fire activity was characterized as low to moderate, moving primarily north, northeast through ponderosa pine, oak and mixed conifer.

Crews will continue to monitor fire activity and take actions along the western boundary of the pre-determined management area for the incident.

Officials analyze many elements when making decisions to manage fires over the long-term. These factors include firefighter and public safety, resource availability, location, time of year, current and forecast weather, and smoke impacts.

The forecast shows rising temperatures and partly cloudy skies with the potential for precipitation early next week.
