Grassy Ridge Fire - Morning Update, July 31st

The focus for fire resources today is to continue to reinforce containment lines around the perimeter of the fire and also around the many large unburned vegetative islands within the fire perimeter. The weather will be hot and dry today with an increasing chance of thunderstorms later this evening and into Wednesday.

Another task today will be to map the dozer line and assess the suppression repair work. The intent of suppression repair is to return the area disturbed during suppression actions to a more natural condition.
Constructing water diversion structures to prevent erosion of the fireline is one common item involved in the repair, as is pulling berms over the line.

The A-2 and the Red Roads are now open for traffic. 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/
