Tincup Fire grows to 72 acres over the weekend

The Tincup Fire remains active and continues to consume dead and down fuel.

High winds propelled the fire to 72 acres over the weekend, which spotted over the 444 trail to the east.

Firefighters are still actively implementing management strategies, including building fire line around private property and other public land values.

No closures are in place, although the forest urges those recreating and hunting in the area to use caution due to fire hazards and potential falling trees.

Smoke from the Tincup Fire will be visible likely until a major precipitation event occurs or until it snows.

Fire managers urge individuals to use caution and stay out of the area due to fire hazards.

The Tincup Fire was discovered on July 30 approximately 30 miles northeast of Soda Springs near the Grays Lake Wildlife Refuge Headquarters.

The lightning-caused fire is slowly spreading towards the northeast away from private property, burning in rugged terrain within the Caribou Mountain Range.
