East Maurys Closure Area Reduced

The East Maury Fire Closure Area has been reduced to allow the public access to more National Forest System lands.

As fire containment grows and the potential for fire spread is reduced, forest managers have decided to reduce the closure area to the immediate vicinity of the fire.

The only campground within the closure area is Elkhorn campground.

The East Maury fire is now mapped at 1,561 acres and 38 percent containment, with about 90 acres on private land.

Around 127 personnel remain assigned to the incident, including a Type 1 and a Type 2 hand crew, 14 engines, 3 dozers, and 4 water tenders.
