Posted by swidrxfire - March 18, 2013 - Fire Update, News - No Comments

The Mountain Home Ranger District is planning on implementing a prescribed fire Tuesday, 3/19/2013.  The Camp Creek Tree well is located east of Ice Springs Campground in the vicinity of Herrin Creek, Camp Creek, and Mineral Creek. The proposed action is to light tree wells of mature Ponderosa Pine and Douglas Fir trees using a helicopter and plastic sphere dispenser (PSD), as well as hand ignition.  The project area is about 850 acres and approximately 1/2 to 2/3 of the area will be available for consumption.
