The lightning caused Woodtick Fire burning six miles west northwest of the Meyers Cove in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness on the Middle Fork Ranger District has burned 4,322 acres. Woodtick Fire behavior was calm Tuesday due to the cooler temperatures and higher humidities. Cloud cover filled the skies all day over the incident, however no measurable rain was reported. The fire continues to creep and smolder with an occasional dust devil due to instability. Firefighters continue to mop up and secure the fires edge around the Camas Creek area. Some hand ignition was continued in order to burn any remaining surface fuels that could reignite later. Crews continued patrols on the West side of Camas Creek around structures and adjacent areas. No further spot fires were reported today.
