Update 8:00 a.m., 9/2/19: Moderate fire activity provided an opportunity for firefighters to conduct some burning along the southwest fire perimeter. This reduced available fuels and the potential for fire to spread outside the containment line. Firefighters started rehabilitation of fireline on the eastern perimeter by installing water bars to prevent potential erosion on downslope areas.

An infrared flight showed a lot of heat within the interior of the fire perimeter with the exception of the northwestern area where there are isolated hot spots. The spot fires detected and lined outside of the eastern perimeter showed no heat. No new spot fires were detected.

Firefighters will continue patrolling and dry mop operations. They will also work on rehabilitation of firelines where necessary to minimize potential erosion. Fire activity is anticipated to remain moderate, burning at low intensities as it moves through unburned vegetation and other fuels within the fire perimeter. As the fire continues to move along the forest floor, it is reducing the likelihood of future re-ignition. Burning out old and dense vegetation returns nutrients back into the soil and enhances regeneration of new growth, which provides nutritious vegetation for wildlife in the area.

Hot, dry weather conditions are expected for the burn area with temperatures around 71 degrees and the minimum humidity at 13 percent. West winds will be 6-7 mph.

9/3/19: Firefighters continued patrolling and dry mopping along firelines yesterday around the fire perimeter.

A new fire ignition, the Shawnee North 1 Fire, was reported by a local citizen at 3:40 p.m. yesterday afternoon. It is located a quarter of a mile north of the Shawnee Peak Fire. It was quickly contained by firefighters assisted with helicopter water drops and kept to less than a tenth of an acre. The cause is unknown.

Firefighters will continue to patrol for and dry mop hot spots along the fire containment lines today as the fire continues to burn within the fire perimeter. Helicopters will be actively working on the fire, hauling cargo, shuttling firefighters and conducting reconnaissance over the fire area.

It will be slightly cooler today with temperatures around 65 degrees. The minimum relative humidity will increase at 26%. There is a slight chance of rain showers between 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m., followed by a chance of thunderstorms. Winds will be from the north at 2-6 mph then easterly by noon at 5-10 mph. Gusty and erratic winds are expected near thunderstorms after 3:00 p.m.

Wildland fire areas typically consist of low, medium, and high intensity burn as well as unburned areas creating a mosaic pattern across the landscape. This is the case with the Shawnee Peak Fire. Many unburned areas remain within the fire perimeter, providing fuels to keep the fire active.

9/4/19: Fire activity was minimal yesterday as the fire continued to smolder and creep along. Firefighters continued working on securing the uncontained fireline along the south and southeast fire perimeter, monitored for any additional hotspots, and patrol the contained fireline. Late afternoon thunderstorms produced about a tenth of an inch of rain over the fire.

The Shawnee North 1 Fire reported Monday afternoon, Sept. 3, was determined as human caused. The fire was located a quarter of a mile north of the Shawnee Peak Fire. Firefighters responded to the fire quickly and were able to contain it to less than one tenth of an acre with the assistance from helicopter water drops.

Firefighters will continue work on securing the uncontained fireline along the south and southeast fire perimeter, monitor for any additional hotspots, and patrol the contained fireline.

Today, it will be cloudy with a slight chance of thunderstorms around noon. Temperatures will reach around 61 degrees and the minimum relative humidity at 25 percent. Winds will be southwest at 6-12 mph. Gusty and erratic winds are expected near the thunderstorms after noon.

Update 6:00 p.m., 9/3/19: A small, single engine airplane entered the Shawnee Peak Fire restricted airspace earlier this week. This is the third violation of the project’s airspace, counting one that occurred during the initial stage of the fire. Unauthorized aircraft pose a high risk of a mid-air collision that would compromise the safety of firefighters in the air and on the ground, which is of grave concern.

When an illegal incursion of a TFR occurs, aircraft assigned to the fire must immediately return to their base or to the closest helispot until the airspace is clear.

Whether you fly a fixed wing, helicopter, glider, hang glider, or are a drone operator, please remember: IF YOU FLY, WE CANNOT.
