  • Carlton Complex Fire 66 % Contained
    The Carlton Complex fire is now 66% contained, with an acreage total of 250,806.  The increased heat and dryness have combined to increase the fire's intensity and producing some isolated smoke.     Helicopters put water on some hot spots around the Pearrygin Lake area, however none of the activity was a new start or outside the fire perimeter.  On the northeastern corner it was the same situation, some isolated smoke and heat that resources spent the day extinguishing and monitoring.     Further south on the eastern side, near the ski area, it was similar, the occasional smoking tree and hot spot that crews were able to manage.     Around the Gold Creek-McFarland creek area resources were busy responding to civilian concerns about smoke.  Nothing to be alarmed about, everything was dealt with and nothing escaped the fire perimeter.     Residents, though, should be aware that the fire is not yet out and activity will still be noticeable.  Please report any concerns you may have.
