From information collected during an infrared flight last night over the Chikamin Fire, the size of the fire is now estimated at 129 acres. This lightning-caused fire is burning in timber in very steep and inaccessible terrain. Approximately 75 personnel are assigned to the fire. Crews will be utilizing natural features, existing roads and trails, and the footprints of past fire areas as they construct fireline to contain the spread of the fire.
Yesterday, fire activity was mostly active in ground fuels with some isolated single tree torching and short range spotting. Somewhat cooler temperatures forecast for today should help firefighting efforts. Those that would like to follow daily reports on this fire can do so via https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/6901/
