Vallecito Fire Update, Oct. 30, 2012
Incident: Vallecito Wildfire
This fire continues to creep around burning on the ground occasionally finding areas of concentrated heavy fuels. The fire remains within the Jack Creek Canyon and the Forest Service's strategy plan.
A ten person Wildland Fire Module (crew) will arrive today to replace the Groveland Hot Shots. In addition, two Type 6 Wildland Fire Engines have also arrived for potential Initial Attack on any new fire starts on the Columbine Ranger District.
One medium and one light helicopter are still committed to this fire dropping water on hot spots next to the fire's perimeter to keep the fire from additional spreading. A fixed wing aircraft (Air Attack) is also monitoring this incident.
Forest Service managers are committed to staff this fire until a significant wet weather event arrives before disengaging all resources from this incident.
There is no current threat to the Vallecito community.
