27: Critical Resource Needs (kind & amount, in priority order):
1.

2.

3.
28: Major problems and concerns (control problems, social/political/economic concerns or impacts, etc.) Relate critical resources needs identified above to the Incident Action Plan.
Vast areas of dead lodgepole pine and spruce. The main fire perimeter in the Pasayten Wilderness is less than 1/4 mile from the international border between the US and Canada.
29: Resources threatened (kind(s) and value/significance):
Potential losses include wildlife habitat, timber values, rangeland uses, recreational uses, water quality and historical and cultural resources of the area.
30: Current Weather Conditions
Wind Speed:
6 mph    Temperature: 64
Wind Direction: South       Relative Humidity: 30
31: Resource benefits/objectives (for prescribed/wildland fire use only):
32: Fuels/Materials Involved: 10 Timber (litter and understory)
Fuel Models 10,and 2. Heavy timber, beetle killed lodgepole pine and spruce, Douglas fir, subalpine fir. Heavy slash and down fuel accumulations.
33: Today's observed fire behavior (leave blank for non-fire events):
The observed fire activity today was very light as the fire continues to smolder and creep around in areas. The few hot spots along perimeter will continue to be the emphasis for work in the coming week.
34: Significant events today (closures, evacuations, significant progress made, etc.):
Over 95 percent of the suppression related rehab has been completed but the area closures will remain in effect around the fire area. The fire is now under a Type 3 organization with the suppression efforts continuing in the north portion of the fire and rehab (BAER) work in the south portion of the fire.

40: Projected incident movement/spread during next operational period:
Very little movement is anticipated.
41: For fire incidents, describe resistance to control in terms of:
1. Growth Potential - Low
2. Difficulty of Terrain - High
42: How likely is it that containment/control targets will be met, given the current resources and suppression/control strategy?
43: Projected demobilization start date: 10/04/2006 0000
44: Remarks:
The Suppression Zone with Type 3 IC Len Broderson, and his resources remain in Omak working the north half of the fire and the Baer Zone with Type 3 IC Dick Dunton, is now working out of Twisp. The remainder of WA IMT #3 will be demoded tomorrow with the exception of a few staying to work with the BAER Team.
