Woodbury Fire morning update June 24 map

To date, no structures have been reported lost from the Woodbury Fire. Efforts to secure these values with structure protection and firing operations have been successful. Mining operations and KV power lines have not been impacted by wildfire. No major injuries have been reported, only minor lacerations and heat-related illness.

Yesterday, easterly winds pushed fire on the northern edge south of Apache Lake towards Four Ranch. Crews applied low intensity fire from Davis Ranch to Fish Creek to catch the wildfire before it progressed to values along the State Highway 88 corridor. Residents will continue to see smoke today from interior burning and intentional firing operations.

Firefighters continue to secure firelines by adding depth through low intensity fire in the Highway 188 corridor. Crews in this area are also improving lines around residences and power line infrastructure. Wildfire progressed towards Roosevelt Lake and connected with the intentional firing operations.

Calmer easterly winds are expected today. The firelines in the areas of Nonesuch Rock and Sawtooth Ridge continue to hold with the assistance of retardant and water drops.
