The Martin Fire is 435,569 acres, or 680 square miles. With 95% containment and continued monitoring by an Unmanned Aircraft System, the Martin Fire is being downgraded to a Type III team. “The Great Basin Incident Management Teams would like to ‘thank’ all local agencies, cooperators and residents for your hospitality and support during [their] time on the Martin Fire.” Crews in the Eastern Zone completed suppression repairs that included repairs to fording sites at streams, knocking down dozer berm piles and repairs to fencing. Hotshot crews continued to work extinguishing two aspen groves that still showed traces of heat on the Western Zone.
Temporary Flight Restrictions are still in place over the Martin Fire, however the Wilson Campground and Reservoir will reopen to the public today as it is no longer needed for Super Scooper aircraft to fill with water.
