Grassy Ridge Fire Evening Update for July 30

Fire resources continued to reinforce containment lines by cold-trailing the perimeter of the fire. Crews are also protecting the remaining green islands within the perimeter of the fire, although it was noted that one island was burning in the interior of the fire. There has been no increase in fire size since the 8 a.m. update.
The official National Wildfire Coordinating Group’s Glossary of Wildland Fire Terminology defines “Contained” as: “The status of a wildfire suppression action signifying that a control line has been completed around the fire, and any associated spot fires, which can reasonably be expected to stop the fire’s spread.”
Based on the current situation, there will not be a night-shift assigned. All night-shift resources will be utilized on day-shift when they become available. Local resources will be released back to their units when no longer
needed.
The road closures on A-2 and the Red Road were lifted. County Law Enforcement check point resources have been removed but a roving patrol will be present to assure that anyone using these roads travel at a safe rate of
speed for current conditions to ensure the safety of our firefighters. Please drive slowly and cautiously if traveling on these roads, as fire crews are still working along the roads.
Air Quality: For information on wildfire smoke the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality has a fact sheet that can be found at: http://www.deq.idaho.gov/air-quality/burning/wildland-fires/
