As of 11 a.m. Thursday, the Summerwood fire has burned approximately 75 acres and is 25 percent contained. The fire is burning in oak brush, sagebrush, and grass.
Fire sustained high winds last night but fire lines held. Today the objects are to limit fire spread to the smallest size possible. This will be accomplished by using natural barriers and direct suppression tactics to minimize impacts to residence and the Kern River Gas infrastructure. Crews are continuing fire line construction through thick oak brush making it slow going and at present the northwest corner is secure.
Open: the City Creek road and the City Creek trail that parallels the road are now open.
Closed: all other previously closed trails remain under closure order. Closed trails include the Bonneville Shoreline Trail north access in City Creek and all other trails North and West of City Creek Canyon, North City Creek Ridgeline trail is closed at eastern most communication tower, Wild Rose trail access closed, Tunnel Springs Bonneville Shoreline trail access closed, Mueller Park trail (Forest Service Trail #1602) access closed, and North Canyon trail (Forest Service trail # 1601) access closed.
Resources being used into one helicopter, seven engines, one hand crew, 15 overhead and a total 70 personnel. The fire has been determined to be human caused and is under investigation.
