Fallers Finish Dropping Snags On East Crater Fire Line

Over the weekend fallers completed work dropping snags along the line for the East Crater Fire in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest’s Indian Creek Wilderness.  The work on Forest Road 6035 east of the wilderness area reduces hazards along that corridor.  Hose lays were to be removed Sunday from the fire’s edge where threats to the containment line have diminished.  Heavy equipment operators were conducting some suppression repair along the Forest Road 6035 fire line, including cleaning culvert inlets.  As that work is completed resources will be released to return home or to other assignments.  While the fire perimeter encompasses an area of nearly 500 acres, burn intensity has been varied across the fire.  As a result, a mosaic of forest conditions have been left behind.
