Gaw’s Gulley Fire

By | June 17, 2015

Early Sunday morning crews checked a fire from Saturday near Range 28 and Gaw’s Gulley.  Several small areas in the center of the black were burning but not doing much.  By 11:30 am Range Control got a call from Range 59C reporting that the smoke on Range 28 changed from light grey to dark black and was spreading out.  Brush 36 &  37 responded on the initial assignment and Brush 56, and 77 were added to the assignment. Crews fired off of Gaw’s Gulley Road and tied two fingers together then let it burn into the center peninsula.  The fire was contained in the Gaw’s Gulley area but had potential to spread into the Gasoline Alley block and crews were prepared to make an aggressive firing operation.  The fire was contained to 23 acres.
