Eneas Peak Fire at 763 acres

August 22, 2022

Over the past 24 hours, the Eneas Peak Fire has grown by 164 acres, bringing it to 763 acres. It is moving favorably to the west and is holding steady on the northern ridge. Firefighters employed detection and recon flights to evaluate the status of the fire and to identify any new starts. In addition, a Type 1 helicopter was borrowed from a nearby IDL fire to deliver bucket drops to the northeast edge of the fire late in the afternoon Sunday.

Today, firefighters will continue assessing and developing strategies for on the ground actions. Air resources are continuing to work fires throughout the dispatch zone and are being made available based on potential threat to values such as private land.

A cold front will move into the area today with chances of thunderstorms throughout the day and cooler temperatures to the valleys and mountains. Breezy conditions are expected Monday and Wednesday with humidity increasing.

Please avoid the Trout Creek Road (FSR 634) as well as the trails nearby due to fire suppression activities in the vicinity.
