Halfway Hill Fire Will Be Managed By Smaller Team
A monsoonal weather pattern has been over southern Utah for the past week. The fire has seen minimal rain fall on the lower elevations and some measurable precipitation at the upper elevations. The precipitation along with successful work from the firefighters has decreased the complexity of the fire. Central Utah Team-Madsen will pass command to a smaller organization, a local Type 4 Incident command, on Monday morning. This smaller group will continue to monitor all sections of the fire, and complete rehabilitation of a small section of dozer line. Two remote cameras have been placed in strategic locations to monitor the areas with the greatest potential for increased fire behavior in the steep and rugged canyons not easily or safely accessed by firefighters.
