EIIFC Fire Update - Henrys Creek Fire 100% Contained


EIIFC FIRE UPDATE September 2, 2016
Idaho Falls, ID – A strong low pressure is moving into the area and affecting weather. Southeastern Idaho expects to see high winds between 30-45 mph and isolated thunderstorms throughout the weekend.

Fire managers urge caution as individuals recreate outdoors this Labor Day Weekend.

 

The Henrys Creek Fire reached containment at 10:00 p.m. on September 1, 2016. The last operational period will be today. Fire crews will continue to periodically monitor the fire area. All closures associated with the Henrys Creek Fire are lifted.

 

The Caribou-Targhee National Forest continues to actively manage the lightning-caused Tin Cup Mountain Fire (1.5 acres), Black Fire (504 acres), Big Elk Fire (68 acres), Carrot Fire (463 acres) and Lanes Creek Fire (216 acres).
