Summary of today's #woodwardfire video update (thx AW):
"Acreage: 3,269 with 17% containment
The firecrews made significant progress yesterday which included back burning, creating fire line and mop up operations. Much of the back burn happened around Bear Valley and above Fox Drive and Silverhills which is what caused the large smoke plumes in the afternoon. Crews will undertake similar operations today.
There is a team of resource advisors on the fire working with the operations teams to help minimize impacts to natural, historical and cultural resources. For example, avoiding retardant drops in freshwater creeks and ponds, and when possible protecting trees essential for spotted owl habitat. Yesterday fire crews were able to protect Kule Loklo using controlled burns.
All evacuation orders and warnings remain.
Heavy smoke is expected to impact the community for the next few days. "
