Mud Springs Fire

The BIA Forest and Wildland Fire - Uintah & Ouray Agency worked over the weekend on the Mud Springs Fire caused by lightning strike on Saturday. The Uintah and Ouray Agency reported that they experienced no control problems and no structures were threatened. They were able to keep the burn to one acre and had it contained on Sunday. The agency shared an amazing video on their Facebook page of a Helicopter 26HX from the BIA Wildland Fire - Crow Agency that assisted on the Mud Springs Fire. We offer our thanks to all the firefighters that keep the beautiful land in the Basin safe.
