Forest officials continue control work on Summit Fire

SNOW MOUNTAIN WILDERNESS – Firefighters continued work on Saturday to completely control and mop up the Summit Fire in the Snow Mountain Wilderness on the Mendocino National Forest.


The fire, which was contained on Friday evening, was located in steep, remote terrain one mile from the Summit Springs Trailhead, approximately 25 miles west of Stonyford, on the Grindstone Ranger District of the Mendocino National Forest.


On Saturday forest spokesperson Tamara Schmidt said more detailed mapping reduced the fire's total estimated acreage from 350 to 287 acres.


Schmidt said the expected control date is 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 18.


Forest officials continue to urge members of the public to avoid traveling or hiking in the fire area. Trailheads in close proximity of the fire are posted. There are no campground or road closures at this time.
