HARVARD, Idaho – The Prospect Fire is completely contained. Firefighters will continue to patrol the area and complete the fireline rehabilitation process over the next couple of weeks. The public can expect to see smoke as internal fuels smolder.
Yesterday, in addition to their work on the fire, crews were able to assist the local fire district as a new fire was reported outside of Potlatch, ID. The fire was contained, and the cause is under investigation.
This will be the last daily update for the Prospect Fire unless fire behavior significantly changes. The North Idaho Type 3 Incident Management Team 2 (NIT3 IMT2) transferred command of the fire back to the Idaho Department of Lands – Ponderosa Area Office as of 6:00 am this morning.
NIT3 IMT2 would again like to thank all the fire crews, cooperators, and contractors; their commitment to fighting fire aggressively and safely throughout this incident has been integral to our success. Community support has been outstanding – Thank You.
