The Peavine Creek Fire, located 5 miles north of Glendale, is estimated to be about 100 acres this morning. The fire, discovered Tuesday afternoon about 5 p.m. by DFPA’s fire detection cameras, damaged two pieces of logging equipment that were parked nearby. The fire is burning on industrial timber lands. It is not threatening any homes. The cause is under investigation.
About 60 firefighters worked through the night Tuesday and made good progress on the fire, creating a fire trail around half of it. Wednesday’s goal is to complete the trail around the entire fire and begin the mop-up phase.
Working the fire today are three 20-person hand crews, two sets of cutters, five water tenders, a bulldozer, a fixed-wing observation aircraft, a helicopter, and various industrial representatives.
