BLM Wyoming Fire Crews keep Bradley Fire growth minimal; evacuations still in effect

RAWLINS, Wyo. – The Bradley fire grew by only 100-acres due to firefighter efforts and aviation support which held the fire along the northern section of the Long Creek drainage as it tried to burn towards Tin Cup Creek and Little Long Creek. The Bradley fire is currently 1,700 acres and 10% contained.  

Today, August 10th, crews will focus on strengthening fire lines, conduct mop-up operations, and protect valuable resources. Wildland firefighters will directly engage the fire if there is a high probability of success and risk to personnel is manageable. Evacuations remain in effect along Long Creek due to accessibility issues and active fire operations. The forecast calls for another day of red flag weather conditions in the area. 

The Bradley Fire started at approximately 2:30 pm on August 7th, 2020. The cause of the fire is unknown.
