inciweb.org

The Conrad Lake fire burning in the Goat Rocks Wilderness area has now burned over 900 acres. Cooler weather yesterday reduced fire activity, and similar conditions are expected today. Over 400 firefighters are battling the lightning caused fire some 8 miles from Rim Rock lake. A priority has been placed on keeping the fire from advancing onto private lands.  Base camp is at the peninsula by Rimrock Lake near the airstrip. Several roads and campgrounds in the area are closed. This fire started by lightning on Friday August 9 and is burning eight miles south of Rimrock Lake and 35 miles southwest of Naches. There are flight restrictions within a seven mile radius of the fire and at the Tieton Airstrip which is at the east end of Rimrock Lake.  The Tieton airstrip is closed to general aviation.  No campfires are allowed on National Forest lands.

Additional personnel and equipment are arriving.  A priority has been placed on keeping the fire from advancing south onto private lands.  Base camp is at the Peninsula by Rimrock Lake.  The roads in the area of the fire and around the Peninsula are closed as well as some campgrounds accessed by roads that are now closed. Fire crews are still responding to new fires resulting from the lightning storm that passed over the area a week ago.
