Bone Creek Fire Information Inquiries: Karl Brauneis, Information Officer
Greybull, WY – Firefighters continued to construct fire lines yesterday and attained 70% containment by late evening. Crews will continue to construct containment lines, suppress hot spots, and mop up today.
Firefighters will also utilize the findings from a fixed wing infra-red flight to help focus their suppression efforts on specific hot spots. Infra-red imaging is a tool designed to map the fires burned area and help assist firefighters in locating hot spots.
In addition, a hand held infra-red heat sensing device will also be used by firefighters to target specific spots. The operator sits airborne in a helicopter and flies over areas identified by either the fixed wing mapping flight or by field firefighters. The hand held infra-red can pick up heat buried below ground in stumps, logs and debris.
