Management of the Decker Fire has been turned over to local units.
With minimal fire activity, most of the firefighters with the Type 3 team have been demobilized. Those remaining will continue to work on taking care of the logistical concerns, and to minimize the Incident Management Team’s impact on the community.
Local crews will monitor smoke and act if necessary. As the weather warms, dry fuels that retained heat are starting to warm back up. These large and heavy fuels have created some heavy smoke. No fire spread is expected to occur.
Moisture from the snowpack will eventually put the fire out.
