Two large helicopters have been assisting the firefighters today at the Grizzly Bear Complex Fire and the new, smaller Falls Creek Fire (also referred to as the Hurricane Fire) burning in the Eagle Cap Wilderness. The new Grizzly Helibase was established near Joseph to assist with both fires.
Warmer temperatures are predicted for tomorrow. The recent severe weather fire period will wane as a cold front moves in on Friday, bringing a 60 percent chance of wetting rain and cooler temperatures. Though not considered a season-ending event, the rain is expected to greatly help firefighters contain the Grizzly Bear Complex Fire.
