Current Situation: Weather near the Reveille Fire has varied this past week from thunderstorms and rain to warm and dry, with humidities as low as 10%. Most days, firefighters have been able to conduct blacklining operations, and they have successfully done so along approximately half the length of the Pole Creek Trail.

The Snowslide Wildland Fire Module is nearing the end of their assignment on the Reveille Fire, and they will begin their travel back home to Idaho on Friday. Some members of the Pike Hotshots are now assisting with operations on the Reveille Fire, and the local crew also remains assigned. Firefighters will continue blacklining and reducing fuels in the fire area. Operations in the coming weeks will be dependent on conditions and weather, and they will be influenced by the timing of eventual monsoons.

Residents should expect to keep seeing smoke over the Reveille Fire. Depending on weather and conditions, smoke will be more visible some days than others. This will likely continue until the arrival of the monsoons.

We will create these official updates when there are changes or significant information to report. On a daily basis, you can still find shorter updates on our Facebook, Twitter, and InciWeb pages.

The Reveille Fire will be a long-term event, with slow growth and smoldering that may persist for several months, along with occasional periods of heavier smoke when burning conditions are elevated. This is typical of fires burning in remote areas with heavy, dead, fuels. While Colorado is not currently considered in drought conditions, the moisture level in the heavy, dead vegetation (fuel) is still very low, as it is still recovering from cumulative drought conditions. This means the potential for burning of these dead fuels is still high, and once ignited, they can smolder for quite some time.   

Management Strategy: The Reveille fire is burning in a remote area of the forest with limited access due to heavy dead and downed fuels and steep, rugged terrain. These conditions, combined with low risk to values in the area (public infrastructure, homes, campgrounds, etc.), have prompted fire managers to choose a full-suppression strategy using indirect tactics, thus mitigating risk to firefighters. 

Closures: National Forest lands, roads and trails affected by the Reveille Fire are closed to public use. Pole Creek Trail (#1398), Salt Road (#409), and Turkey Creek Road (#637) are closed to public use. The Greenhorn Road (#369) and the Williams Creek Road (#630) remain open for public travel.
