Lincoln National Forest-Outlaw Fire: Final Post

This will be the final post for the Outlaw Fire unless there is a significant change.

Fire Update: After more accurate GPS mapping, the Outlaw Fire was determined to be approximately 10 acres in size. Crews were able to construct fireline around the entire perimeter of the fire to reinforce the retardant that was dropped yesterday by aircraft. Five fire engines, one 20-person type-2 fire crew and a 10-person short module fire crew extinguished hot spots near the perimeter of the lightning-caused fire. Fire activity is minimal although smoke may be seen as logs inside the perimeter of the fire continue to smolder over the coming days.

The Lincoln National Forest remains under fire restrictions due to drought conditions. No campfires are permitted outside of the developed campgrounds in a metal Forest Service-installed fire pit. There is no smoking outdoors in the forest. Fireworks are always illegal on National Forests. Lincoln county is also under a burn ban.
