Boulder Fire At 232 Acres; Efforts Focused On Western Flank

The Boulder Fire is estimated to have burned 232 acres southeast of Mt. Hood on the Barlow Ranger District near Boulder Lake Trailhead.  Mt. Hood National Forest officials say the fire is burning in dead and down debris located in steep, rugged terrain.  Northwest Incident Management Team 10 Operations Section Chief Josh Riepe says they are focusing much of their efforts on the western flank of the fire to secure control line with hand crews and heavy equipment.  Riepe says the fire has progressed easterly toward Boulder Creek as hand crews work to establish line.  Aviation assets are being used on the north side of the fire.
