Crews making progress on small wildfire above Green Canyon

Firefighters are gaining containment on the small fire burning above Green Canyon, east of North Logan.  The Jardine Fire has burned approximately 3.5 acres since being reported on July 29.

In a press release, the US Forest Service said the blaze is burning in steep, rocky terrain on the east side of Mount Jardine.  It is now 75 percent contained.  There are still isolated pockets of sub-alpine fir trees on fire that are producing some smoke.

Eight firefighters from the Kings Peak Wildland Fire Module are continuing to work the hot spots.  They are eliminating and clearing fuels, and continuing to monitor the isolated burning in the cliffs.

The Forest Service said no structures, campgrounds or trails have been closed by the fire, and it is not threatening any communities in the valley.  They are asking back country hikers and backpackers to avoid the area around the fire.
